Malware vs Virus
Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.
By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types 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?
As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It is 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 analyze which Internet sites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.
Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it hurts computer functionality and can be bothersome.
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 presence is typically hidden from the server and it’s very tricky to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers may be set up intentionally in an organization to track the activities of workers.
This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating files and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to create a user think they are 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 attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your 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 may show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.
The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind 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.. ,
