In a world where everything you do and create can be shared over the Internet, it is important to remember that not all software and websites that you encounter have your best interests in mind.
Malware is a more generic term given to any type of software that is meant to harm your PC and the information stored on it. Depending on how they act, malware can be divided into a multitude of subcategories, including:
Viruses • Trojans • Spyware • Ransomware • Adware • Scams
All of these have the potential to steal or corrupt your data, which in some cases can become irreplaceable. On the other hand, you may have the possibility to recover your data, but only if you pay a hefty sum of money, such as with ransomware.
