Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized 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 types of malware that protection systems needed to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What’s a Malware?
As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves 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 display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.
Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it harms computer performance and can be annoying.
This type 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 presence is typically hidden from the host and it is very tricky to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of workers.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all the system operating documents 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 run them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.
In large systems, it might try to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may 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 very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
