What is malware?
What is malware?
Malware is malicous software that is intentionally designed to damage a system or steal data. Malware is most often used by cybercriminals for financial gain, but can also be distributed as a form of protest or as an offensive weapon in the state-sponsored attacks that have become increasingly popular. Common forms of malware include viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, ransomware, botnets and any other type of potentially unwanted application.
  • Damages a system or steals data
  • Used by cybercriminals for financial gain
  • Includes viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, ransomware, etc.
