Malware vs Virus

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

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What is a Malware?

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

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects another software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to 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 sites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

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

Some spyware like keyloggers may be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to create a user think they are 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 attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

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

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
