What are Different Kinds of Malware?

Malware means malicious software. Malware usually means software that exploits a user’s system and is tricky to remove. Types of malware include spyware, which collects data on the user and transmits it to third parties. The worst malware is a computer virus, programs which can harm the computer many ways and make copies of themselves to avoid total removal. Other malware includes rootkits, worms, crimeware, and adware (though not all adware is malicious). You can find more information here:
