Malware v’s Virus

The term malware covers all types of malicious software. Therefore any program whose purpose is harmful is a malware program. Industry groups like the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) use this term for clarity. But the general public still asks for antivirus, not anti-malware and viruses removal instead of malware removal. Just remember that your antivirus strategy should protect you against any and all malware. Also beware most individual anti-virus products do not.

There are many types of malware, including:

  • Virus; a computer virus injects its code into an innocent program. When the program runs the virus code runs too, spreading the virus to other programs.
  • Worms; are similar to viruses, but they don’t require the user to launch an infected program.
  • Adware; a program designed to display advertisements on your screen, often within a web browser.
  • Spyware; when installed steels information from your computer.
  • Trojan; a program that conceals malicious code within a seemingly useful application.
  • Bots; a bot infestation doesn’t actively harm your computer, but it makes your system complicit in harming others.
  • Rootkit; hooks into the operating system to hide a malicious program’s components.
  • Ransomware; holds your computer or your data for ransom. The most common form it encrypts documents.
