Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite 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.

By way of example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What’s 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 mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself after it’s run. It is chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known 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 hurts computer functionality 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 existence is typically hidden from the host and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that is designed to create 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 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 restricts access to the computer system before 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 1 kind 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.. ,
