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 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 types of malware that security 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 in addition to other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is chiefly 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 screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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’s very difficult to detect.

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

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to make a user think they’re a safe program and run 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 might attempt 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 sort of malware that restricts access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen might show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and that you can 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 1 type of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
