Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely used by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had to deal with. 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 applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other 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 author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user 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 will become a problem anyway since it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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 quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It functions to eat up all of the system operating documents and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and run them. They might 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 might attempt to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which 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 you could 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’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
