Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection systems had to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What’s a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses along with other types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it is very difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that is designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and operate them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware that restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It is quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
