Malware vs Virus
Knowing the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind 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 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 in addition to other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.
As mentioned, a Virus is a specific type of malware alone. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It’s mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, 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 harms computer performance and can be annoying.
This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. 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’s quite difficult to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally within an organization to monitor the activities of employees.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the host PC. It functions to eat up all of the system operating files and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a type of virus that is 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 server computer’s system files.
In large systems, it may try to make a host system or network resource inaccessible to those attempting to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which restricts 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 that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.
The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid in order for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
