Malware

Malicious software, or malware, is a term used to describe software designed to disrupt computer operations, or gain access to computer systems, without the user's knowledge or permission.

Malware has become an umbrella term used to describe all hostile or intrusive software. The term malware includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware, and other malicious programs. Malware may be obvious and simple to identify or it can be very stealthy and almost impossible to detect.

Types of Malware

A virus is malicious executable code attached to another executable file, such as a legitimate program. Most viruses require end-user initiation, and can activate at a specific time or date.

Computer viruses usually spread in one of three ways: from removable media; from downloads off the Internet; and from email attachments.

A Trojan horse is malware that carries out malicious operations under the guise of a desired operation such as playing an online game. This malicious code exploits the privileges of the user that runs it.

A Trojan horse differs from a virus because the Trojan binds itself to non-executable files, such as image files, audio files, or games.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software, also known as malware. It encrypts a victim’s data until the attacker is paid a predetermined ransom. Typically, the attacker demands payment in a form of cryptocurrency such as bitcoin. Only then will the attacker send a decryption key to release the victim’s data. Many ransomware variants have appeared in recent years.
