We are aware of how worms work, how they invade existing and new networks, spread from one network to another and infect all devices along the way. A worm can affect the routers, the wired and wireless networks and any device that is capable of hooking onto a network. That is why worm removal is more difficult. One cannot search for a worm on a particular device if the worm is already in the network and on multiple devices. Also, since a worm doesn’t latch onto a particular file, it is not possible to check the files for a particular worm.
A virus can modify a file or make it corrupt. A malware can delete a file and cause loss of data. A spyware will secretly steal information and pass it to the intended source. An adware will plague your system with ads, pop-ups and will also potentially pass your browsing history, pattern or behavior to potential buyers. A worm is a kind of virus but it doesn’t have any of the aforementioned purposes.
It doesn’t change a file, corrupt it or steal information. It simply spreads. A worm is programmed to spread through a network, affecting all devices connected to the network and since the internet network is connected to every device that is hooked on, the possibility of a worm affecting the global internet network is pretty high. But that doesn’t happen easily since users do have effective protection at various levels.
It is the unique nature of a worm that makes it difficult to be traced. Thus, worm removal is not as similar as antivirus or spyware removal programs.
