Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is quite important. A virus is just one type of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, 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 pace. What is a Malware?

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

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects the other applications on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s mostly known to disperse when the program is shared between computers. This behaves more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are printed on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly 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 actions. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it is very tricky to detect.

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

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files 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 sort of virus that is designed to create 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 server computer’s system files.

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

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced type of malware that restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might show a pop-up warning that you have 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 is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
