Now know what the malware is?

Malware is an abbreviation of English malicious software. It is the only software used to disrupt the normal functioning of a computer or mobile, to collect confidential information, to illegally access a protected computer network system or to display unwanted advertisements. In 1990 Yisrael Radai introduced the term malware. Previously, this national software was called a computer virus. The first tier of malware to spread is the software part of parasitic software that integrates itself with an executable file. This part may be a machine code that can infect any machine applications, utilities, system programs, or even any code necessary to start the machine. Malware is defined by its harmful purpose. They work against the interests of the computer user. If a software involuntarily causes a computer problem due to its inability, then it is not called malware.
