An Introduction :: Adware & Malware

What is Adware?

Adware is referred to as advertisement software included with software and is commonly used to recover the development costs of a program for the developer. Sometimes doing this will allow the program to be available to users at a reduced cost or possibly free of charge.

Unfortunatly, adware can take the form of spyware, tracking and reporting user data and then re-selling it without the user's consent. In addition, it is possible that adware can act as a gateway for Malware.

What is Malware?

Malware is created to penetrate and damage a system without the user's consent. Basically, malware is identified by the intent of its creator rather than a particular function. Usually, the term malware includes computer viruses, trojans, worms, or any other malicious software that can damage your computer.
