Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one type 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 example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had 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 in addition to other kinds of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects another software on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This acts 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 author. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the user 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 because it hurts computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type 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 presence is typically hidden from the server and it’s very tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally in an organization to monitor the activities of workers.

Worms

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

Trojan

Trojans are a sort of virus that is designed to make a user think they are a safe program and operate 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 might attempt to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Case in point: 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 may 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 needs a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
