Malware is a computer virus that infects a computer and then replicates itself. It can damage the files on the hard drive and also affect the integrity of the computer. Viruses often spread through file-sharing and electronic communications.

Viruses can be spread through emails and malicious websites. They can also be manually installed onto a computer. Some examples of malware include ransomware, adware, and Trojan horses.

Worms are malicious programs that replicate themselves and spread. They can damage the hard drive, make the system unusable, and can even steal data. Worms can infect a single computer or a network of computers.

Adware is an application that displays unwanted advertisements. It usually gets onto a computer by being downloaded from a dubious website or app. Often, adware serves aggressive advertising.

Botnets are networks of infected computers. Generally, botnets work for DDOS attacks and are commanded by one attacker. The threat actor has privileged access to the target’s system, and can also monitor the user’s activities and collect personal information.

Rootkits are a group of tools that allow a threat actor to control a computer. Many threats use these tools to gain remote administrative control. However, they are difficult to detect and are often mistaken for legitimate programs.

Viruses can affect the integrity of the host and the availability of the host. They can also corrupt and alter important OS files.
