A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, including but not limited to adware and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can spread from one computer to another in some form of executable code when its host is taken to the target computer. This is accomplished over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive and can be transmitted by email.
Viruses are sometimes confused with worms and Trojan horses, which are technically different. A worm can exploit security vulnerabilities to spread itself automatically to other computers through networks, while a Trojan horse is a program that appears harmless but hides malicious functions. Worms and Trojan horses, like viruses, may harm a computer system's data or performance. Some viruses and other malware have symptoms noticeable to the computer user, but many are surreptitious or simply do nothing to call attention to themselves.
Malware is short for malicious software designed to secretly access a computer system without the owner's informed consent. Often the first sign that your system is infected is that the system begins to slow down as these programs run undetected.
