Malware is short for “malicious software,” and refers to any software that is designed to harm or exploit computer systems. There are many different types of malware, including:

Viruses:
A virus is a type of malware that is designed to replicate itself and spread from one computer to another. It does this by attaching itself to other programs or files and spreading itself when those programs or files are run or opened.

A worm is a type of malware that is designed to replicate itself and spread from one computer to another over a network. It does this by exploiting vulnerabilities in the network or in the operating system of the target computers.

Trojans:
A Trojan is a type of malware that is disguised as legitimate software, but which actually contains malicious code. When the Trojan is installed or run, it can perform a variety of harmful actions, such as installing other malware, stealing sensitive data, or taking control of the computer.

Ransomware:
Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts the files on a victim’s computer and demands payment in exchange for the decryption key.

Malware can be spread through a variety of means, including email attachments, downloads from the internet, or by exploiting vulnerabilities in software or operating systems. It is important to use antivirus software and practice safe computing habits in order to protect against malware infections.
