The Internet today has been revolutionized and every day we experience something new and exciting. Today, thanks to technology, people can be connected with their friends in another country; they can stay connected with family and relatives even while being far away from home. However, there are numerous malware also, which are malicious software that can ruin your PC or laptop, which contains sensitive data like your credit card details and other personal information. These malware can be used by hackers to gain unauthorized access to such devices and can damage them, your computer, smartphone, etc. But before installing any kind of malware you must be aware about its type and how to protect your data against these malwares to prevent yourself from getting affected by these kinds of issues.
Malware is the short term for Malicious Software. This kind of software is dangerous because it can secretly access a device without the user’s knowledge to steal information. So if a person installs any type of malware on his system he will face unwanted data stealing and it will damage the entire system of the pc, mobile devices, smartwatches or anything else installed on the device. There are two main types of Malware – Adware and Spyware. In simple words Adware is known as pop-up ads that appear at the start of games, websites, web pages etc. And Spyware is an intrusive program that comes from unknown sources and disguises itself as something genuine if someone gets interested in opening such programs on a PC.
These programs create several files including.exe,.apk, etc., in the folder where the victim installed those programs. They have their own way of interacting with the OS system (using registry), hiding inside the file names and folders. Some malware files can delete files or copy other ones by deleting certain directories. Others can encrypt or decrypt files. Other than that, some malware can modify configuration files from your computer, so that they can be able to do what you cannot manage when you turn off the firewall or you use public Wi-Fi.
When users download a malicious program via a link or file downloader, it starts modifying files on your computer using methods called “invasive techniques,” which make your computer look like it is infected. For example, a rogue adware may add several executable files to Windows folder, causing it to look like it is a directory. After all this, it uses your machine as a base to install more malware. This technique works very well. Many people think that it only shows pop up ads whenever they log in, but this malware does everything else to work silently on your computer to steal data from it.
