The word malware is a combination of two words “malicious” and “software”. These software programs designed to damage or do other unwanted actions on a computer system. Malicious programs can be delivered physically to a system through a USB drive or other means. They can often spread via the internet through drive-by-download(for example-pop up message).
There are various types of malware including spyware, keyloggers, true viruses, worms, or any type of malicious code that infiltrates a computer. Malware like Trojan horses does not replicate themselves, but they can damage a system badly. These generally come in the form of screensavers or free games. A virus is the most common type of malware, that can execute itself and spreads by infecting other programs or files.
