Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is very 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 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 along with 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 part of code that infects another software on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s chiefly known to disperse when the program 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 display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet websites, 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 functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. 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 host and it is very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be installed intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and operate them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later 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 inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
