Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type 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.

By way of instance, 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 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 alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the display 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 all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it hurts 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 quite 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 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’s 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 server computer’s system files.

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

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type 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 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 1 kind of ransomware. It’s quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
