    How to Keep Your Computer Secure from Malware | Avira Antivirus Support

    The word Malware is the contraction of Malicious Software. Malware is basically software with the intent of harming data or devices. However, it can be of the different type including virus, spyware, worm, Trojans, Ransomware, adware, and botnet. These are actually programs that can harm your device. In this blog, Avira Antivirus Support experts of GlobalTech Squad have given an idea about Malware, types of Malware, and how to protect your PC from Malware.

    Types of Malware – 

    Virus- A computer virus is a program, designed to cause damage and steal information. Viruses attach it to files and infect other files. It can even damage a system’s core functionality and delete or corrupt files and data. Most Noteworthy, they usually appear as an executable file.

    Trojans- This kind of malware seems as legitimate software, or attached to legitimate software. It acts discreetly and creates backdoors in your security to let other malware in.

    Spyware- Spyware is malware designed to spy on your activities. It hides in the background and takes notes on what you do online, including your passwords, credit card numbers, surfing habits and more.

    Worms- Worms infect entire networks of devices, either local or across the internet, by using network interfaces. It uses each consecutive infected machine to infect more.

    Ransomware- Also called scareware, this kind of malware can encrypt computer files and data, and ask for ransom in Bitcoin to decrypt the file to its original form.

    Adware- Although Adware is not always malicious in nature, particularly aggressive advertising software can undermine your security just to serve you ads — which can give a lot of other malware a way in. Plus, let’s face it: pop-ups are really annoying.

    Botnets- Botnets are networks of infected computers that work together under the control of an attacker.
