How did I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You might get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with an invoice or tracking number), downloading software or games, or simply browsing the web.

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 utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that protection systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What’s a Malware?

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

Virus

As mentioned, 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 once it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts 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 author. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

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

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the host PC. It works to eat up all 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 operate them. They might 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 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 needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
