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

Malware vs Virus

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

By way of instance, 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 along with other types of software such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself after it’s run. It’s chiefly known to spread when the program is shared between computers. This acts 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 writer. The advertisements are printed 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 will become a problem anyway because 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 collecting 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 difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It works 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 make a user think they’re a safe program and run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may attempt to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that 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 limitation to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s very tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
