Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, 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 instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds 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 along with other types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.
As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s 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 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.
This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It enables 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 server and it is very tricky to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of employees.
This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It works to eat up all the system operating files and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a type of virus that’s 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 might try to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.
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 you’ve 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 restriction 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.. ,
