Malware (or malicious software) is software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive or annoying software or program code. The term “computer virus” is sometimes used as a catch-all phrase to include all types of malware including true viruses.

Software is considered malware based on the perceived intent of the creator rather than any particular features. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, most rootkits, spyware, dishonest adware, crimeware and other malicious and unwanted software. Malware is not the same as defective software or software which has a legitimate purpose but contains harmful bugs.
