What is malware?
Malware is an abbreviation of malicious software. It includes all intrusive software, mainly used by cybercriminals, to steal and ransom important data and to damage and destroy computers.
The most common forms of malware include viruses, Trojans, spyware, and ransomware.
As technology continues to evolve, malware is becoming more and more advanced. That’s why professional experts in malware removal are essential to recovering data and devices from an attack.

What are the different types of malware?
These malware types attach to a file or document. When downloaded, the virus will lay dormant until the infected file is opened. They are made up of malicious code designed to alter normal computer operations and spread from one computer to another, much in the same way as a flu virus.
This rapidly replicating malware can spread to all devices attached to the same network because, while viruses need host programs to execute their code, worms are not limited in the same way. This means that they can infiltrate a device through a downloaded file or a network connection.
While not all adware is necessarily harmful to your device, it can slow down your operating system and even contain Trojan viruses and spyware. The best bet is to be safe and run regular scans of these programs.
This secret malware reports your sensitive data back to a remote user, targeting financial information and private passwords. It can even give remote access to cybercriminals.
Often disguised as a harmless link, once downloaded, ransomware can encrypt your sensitive or valuable information. From here, it will demand a financial ransom in return for the encryption key to unlock the data.
One of the trickiest forms, this memory-resident malware operates not from hard drive files but from a computer’s memory. In situations like this, there are no files to scan that will pick up on the malware and only a factory reboot can solve the problem.
