Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.
For 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 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.
As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread 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 writer. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.
Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it hurts computer performance and can be annoying.
This type 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 server and it’s quite difficult to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of employees.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It functions 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 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 inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts access to the computer system before 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 1 kind of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
