Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.

For instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had to take care of. 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 software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the display 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 hurts computer functionality and can be annoying.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. 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 set up intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that’s designed to create a user think they’re 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 may attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware which restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might 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 limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
