Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, 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 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 mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program 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 printed on the display presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze 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 hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort 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 existence is typically hidden from the server and it is very difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers may be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a sort 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 take over the resources of the server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts 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 demands a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
