Computer Repair Topics: Distinctions
Between Different Types of Malware
term ‘computer virus’ has been used
as a blanket term to describe all types of malware, but this isn’t technically
correct. It’s true that a virus was the first type of malware developed, but
many other flavors of malware exist. Each presents its own problems.
in a good, current anti-malware program can make life much easier but it is not
complete protection. As shocking of a
statement as this might be: do not rely on your antivirus software to protect
you from computer viruses. Do a Google Search education resources on how to prevent computer viruses and how to keep your
computer in tune.
5 primary types of malware are:
1. Virus: This type of malware is defined
by the action of replicating itself and then inserting that copy. The copy
might be inserted into data files, the boot sector of the hard drive, or other
programs. In many cases, the virus causes harm by assessing personal
information, corrupting data, taking up excessive space on the hard drive, or
stealing CPU cycles. A virus doesn’t have to be destructive; the fact that it
replicates itself is what categorizes it as a virus.A virus is a specific type of malware. Not all malware is a virus.
2. Spyware: This is a program that gathers
information about a user or computer without the knowledge of the user. This
information is commonly sent to another person or organization. Spyware can
even control certain aspects of the computers operation. In most cases, spyware
is used to track Internet activity to gather consumer information. But spyware
can also record login IDs, passwords, and banking and credit card information.
3. Ransomware: Ransomware restricts user access
to a computer system. It essentially demands a ransom to return that access to
normal. In most cases, the computer is locked and only displays a message that
encourages the user to pay. The message will suggest that the computer has been
infected with malware and offer a solution to fix the problem. In more
sophisticated examples, the ransomware will actually encrypt the user’s files.
4. Worm: A worm is similar to a computer
virus; however, it is able to spread itself without being attached to a
program. It self-replicates like a virus, but frequently doesn’t cause file
disruption. In many cases, the only harm caused by worms is the excessive use
of bandwidth and increasing network traffic. But worms can certainly be
designed with the ability to cause the same type of havoc as any virus.
5. Trojan: A Trojan or Trojan horse does not
replicate itself. However, it is a program that can cause harm to a computer.
This harm might include data theft or provide a backdoor to your computer or
computer data. A Trojan can significantly slow a computer and is one of the
most common signs that a Trojan exists. Trojans also do not insert themselves
into other programs or files. Experts claim that over 80% of malware are

email attachment, be sure the source can be trusted. Most anti-malware programs
are able to scan individual files. This can be good insurance, but it’s
important to keep your anti-malware software up to date. Be sure you’re getting
