Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, but 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 protection systems had to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. 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 discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

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 difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor 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 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 run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

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

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen might show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and that you can 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 kind of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
