Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely used 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 types of malware that security systems had to take care of. 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 in addition to other kinds of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly known to disperse 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 printed on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, 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 collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the host and it’s very tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It works to eat up all of 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 operate them. They may 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 try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which 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 needs a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
