Malware vs Virus

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

By way of 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’s a Malware?

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

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse 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 writer. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

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 presence is typically hidden from the server and it’s very tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It functions to eat up all the system operating files 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 run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and that you can 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 very 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.. ,
