“The 101” – Episode 4 – What are the Different Types of Malware?

August 2, 2017 / Sean Blanton

We’re back with another episode of The 101! This weekly security series aims to define endpoint security one question at a time. Tune in each week as we tackle a new term, concept, or comparison in our ongoing effort to cut through the noise and provide clear definitions.

So far we’ve talked about NGAV and other types of antivirus, comparing and contrasting how they stop malware and non-malware attacks. We also defined non-malware, but what about malware? Malware is a big topic, so today we’re going to start our ongoing discussion by asking: What are the different types of malware?
