How did I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You might get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or just browsing the internet.

Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one type 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 types of malware that security systems needed to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What is a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects the other applications on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, 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 harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

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 tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally within an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to make a user think they’re a safe program and operate 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. Case in point: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware that 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 you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid for the limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one type of ransomware. It is very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
