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 applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that security systems had 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 types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious part of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself after it is run. It’s 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 is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet sites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway since it hurts computer performance and can be annoying.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet activities. It helps 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 is quite difficult to detect.

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

Worms

This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server 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 make a user think they’re a safe program and operate them. They might 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 type of malware which limits 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 restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 kind of ransomware. It’s quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
