Different Types of Malware
Adware: a program whose main purpose is to present you with advertising - usually in the form of pop-up windows. Most adware comes with software you download, from websites you visit, or from clicking on pop-up windows. Besides being annoying, some adware makes changes to your browser (i.e. your homepage) and uses bandwidth to retrieve the ads. Adware can slow down your PC because it uses memory and processing cycles. It can also corrupt your PC due to its poor programming. Often adware also includes spyware.
Bot: short for robot, a bot is a program that allows a hacker to remotely control and command your PC - turning it into a "zombie PC." Your PC will be used to disable legitimate websites, hack into other PCs, or send thousands of spam emails. Anti-virus and anti-spyware software often do a poor job of detecting and removing bots because bots are easy to create and distribute. Besides using a firewall, having a strong password on your PC’s administrator account can help prevent a bot from getting into your PC. (Note: there are good robots, too. Search engines like Google use robots to crawl the Internet looking at the content of web pages in order to service you when you do a keyword search.)
Data miner: a small program whose function is to gather data about you. Some data miners act much like spyware. But other data miners are used by retail companies to track certain information about you in order to analyze the coagulate data for significant patterns.
Dialer: a program designed to hijack your modem or VOIP-server and connect to a toll (900) or long-distance phone number. Dialers are usually used by pornographic vendors. Dialers can ad huge charges to your phone bill.
Keylogger: a program whose main purpose is to monitor the keystrokes on your PC to capture information like bank account numbers and passwords, and then send the information back to the originator. Since keyloggers need to “phone home,” the proper use of a firewall can help prevent any damage from a keylogger until you can eradicate it.
Spyware: a program whose main purpose is to collect and share personal information about you - such as your email addresses or websites you’ve visited. Spyware typically come bundled with downloaded software, or is installed when you click a pop-up window on a website. Your personal information is then shared with advertisers and other interested companies.
Trojan horse: a program that often appears harmless, but is very destructive when executed. A trojan horse can corrupt your data files or steal your passwords, disable your security software, steal your files, capture your keystrokes, randomly delete files on your PC, and completely take over your PC. A Trojan can get installed on your PC in many ways: via an email attachment, attached to downloaded game or software, or just from visiting a website!
The first sign of a hacker could also simply be theft of money from your bank account. If you keep your own banking information, including user IDs and passwords, in a file on your unprotected webserver, it’s entirely possible that someone could sneak on, find this information, and disappear again.
