Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.

For instance, 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 rate. What’s a Malware?

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

Virus

As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the software 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 author. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the consumer visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.

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

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It helps the hacker in collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it’s quite difficult to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to track the activities of employees.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server 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 server computer’s system files.

In large systems, it might try to earn a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware that limits access to the computer system before the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to depend on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
