What is Malware?

The term malware is very broad and can be used to describe a lot of different security vulnerabilities, such as computer viruses, spyware, adware, intrusive software, etc. This is usually in the form of executable code and scripts which are designed to secretly access a system without the user’s knowledge. Typically people think of malware as something that infects their computer or laptop, which then requires an anti-virus software. But malware also works the same way on web servers and websites. If you download a plugin with a virus in one of the files and then install that plugin on your WordPress site, it can infect your entire website, and spread just like it would on your computer.
