Malware vs Virus

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

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds 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 types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the server 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 writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it hurts computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

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

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed intentionally within an organization to track the activities of workers.

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 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 may try to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Example: your small 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 you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands 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 rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
