What is Malware?

Malware is short for malicious software. Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system.

What is a Virus?

A Virus is a specific type of malware by itself. It acts much like a parasite, spread from computer to computer through shared software as it is a piece of code that infects the other software on the host system.

What is Adware?

Adware, or advertising-supported software, is software that generates income for the software developer by showing ads whenever the software is used. Most adware is not malicious, but it can affect computer performance.

What is Spyware?

Spyware does just what it says, it tracks your internet activities. They are typically installed without the users consent and collect data on computer usage and are hidden from the user.

What are Worms?

Worms replicate themselves and destroys information and files on the host computer including system operating files and data files.

What is a Trojan?

Trojans make a user think they are a safe program to use.  Once run they may steal personal and financial information and/or take over the resources of the host computer.  In large networks, host system or network resource may become unavailable/offline.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is the most insidious attack that can hit your computer or network as it is neither subtle nor hidden for long. It is typically delivered via a malicious attachment or link in a phishing email. Once active, ransomware begins encrypting the infected system, and then locks out the user until they pay a ransom – hence ransomware. Ransom is typically paid in bitcoin or other cryptocurrency to release/decrypt the computer/files.
