Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

For instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems needed to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What is a Malware?

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

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the user visits regularly 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 sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the server and it is very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to make a user think they are a safe program and operate them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may try to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 demands a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
