Definitions / Additional Information

Viruses, spware and adware are all forms of malware (a shortened form of "malicious software"). They are programs designed to run on your computer without your consent.

They are typically installed accidentally or via stealth and once present, can basically do whatever the program author designs them to do.

Some examples of malware:

  • viruses - so named because of their ability to replicate themselves and spread to other machines, some semi-recent examples are the melissa and i love you viruses.

  • spyware - a program that resides upon your computer that collects information about you (websites you visit, passwords you type in, etc.) without your knowledge. Normally, the data collected will be sent or uploaded to a remote server to be exploited for nefarious purposes later. A keylogger is an example of a spyware program.

  • adware - a program that automatically displayes advertisements to the user without permission. Pop-ups and the user's web browser are common advertisement delivery mechanisms.
