Malware v’s Virus

The term malware covers all types of malicious software. 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. Just remember that your antivirus strategy should protect you against any and all malware, but 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.
  • Spyware – Steels information from your computer
  • Trojan – programs conceal 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 – technology hooks into the operating system to hide a malicious program’s components.
  • Ransom ware – holds your computer or your data for ransom. In the most common form it encrypts documents.
