MalwareShort for "malicious software", and is the collective term for all viruses and harmful software.
VirusesViruses are malicious software that spread throughout computers after a user accidentally runs an infected application, opens an infected email or visits an infected website.
WormsWorms are similar to Viruses, but actively transmit themselves through the internet without user input. Because no action is required by the user, some of the most aggressive worms have been known to spread to millions of computers worldwide only days after their release.
Trojan HorsesTrojan Horses (or just "Trojans") are Malware that disguise themselves as legitimate files or applications. Because of this, Trojan Horses are the most common form of Malware that Antivirus software fails to pick up. Even symptomless computers are often host to Trojans.
RootkitsRootkits are software that are normally installed along-side a malicious application. Their purpose is to stop the Malware from being detected, or to stop the Malware from being removed once found.
AdwareAdware is a very common form of malicious software which displays advertising to the user in the form of popups, fake software registrations or by opening certain websites periodically.
SpywareThe primary role of Spyware is to collect information about the computer's user without their knowledge. This could range from analysing what websites are viewed for target advertising, right through to collecting bank details prior to robbery or identity theft.
