Malware vs Virus
Understanding 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 general public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.
For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection 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 in addition to other kinds of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.
As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are printed 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 all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway since it hurts computer performance and can be annoying.
This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It enables 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 monitor the activities of employees.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all 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 are a safe program and operate them. They may 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 try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable 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 before the user pays a fee. Your screen might show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.
The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid in order for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
