What is malware & types? (Keyloggers/Virus)
Malware, short for malicious software, including computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware, and other malicious programs. It can take the form of executable code, scripts, active content, and other software. Malware is defined by its malicious intent, acting against the requirements of the computer user — and so does not include software that causes unintentional harm due to some deficiency.
- Ransomeware “Pay To Access”(Type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system, either by locking the system’s screen or by locking the users’ files unless a ransom is paid. More modern ransomware families, collectively categorized as crypto-ransomware, encrypt certain file types on infected systems and forces users to pay the ransom through certain online payment methods to get a decrypt key also known as a password.)
- Spyware “24/7 Watching You” (Type of malware that is sitting quietly on the background of the computer can be deceived as important program that is required to keep the computer running, spying on your every movement on the internet, gathering information of you. E.g.-“Keystrokes, Websites you view, Usernames&Passwords, Basically everything you do.)
