Malware vs Virus

Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very 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 kinds of malware that security systems needed to take care of. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. 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 particular type of malware alone. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It’s chiefly 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 published on the screen presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, 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 harms computer performance and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online 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 server and it’s quite tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of workers.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It functions 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 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 unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that restricts 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 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 quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to rely on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
