Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely used by the 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 deal with. 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.
As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.
Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed 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 since it harms computer performance and can be bothersome.
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 existence is typically hidden from the host and it is quite difficult to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of employees.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating files and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a sort of virus that is designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and run them. They may 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 try to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced type of malware that restricts access to the computer system until 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 restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
