Malware vs Virus
Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.
By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had to deal with. 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.
As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another software on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It is chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
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 published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the user visits frequently 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.
This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s existence is typically hidden from the server and it’s very tricky to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed intentionally within an organization to track the activities of employees.
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 documents and data files on a drive.
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 later take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.
In large systems, it might try to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may 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 for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
