What are Virus, Worm, Trojan Horse, Blended Threats and difference between these

What are Virus, Worm, Trojan Horse, Blended Threats and difference between these- The people make most common mistake on the topic of computer virus is to a worm or Trojans as a similar thing i.e. a virus. While Trojans, worms and virus are not exactly the same thing. They all are not virus or a similar thing. Their actions, capability, the degree of the harm they cause, the method of propagation they use, every thing is different. The common thing in them is that Viruses, worms and Trojans Horses are all malicious codes and  cause severe damage to a computer, But these are differences things and it will help us a lot to protect our computer from their possible damaging effects if we know those differences better.

What Is a Virus?

A virus always attaches itself to a program or file(.Exe file) which enables it to spread one computer to another computer, and keeps leaving infection as it travels. Some virus cause a mild damage or annoying the user but some others can damage your software or files and even your hardware too. As almost all virus  attached to an executable file, but it cannot infect your computer until you run or open the .exe file containing malicious program  though the virus may exist on your computer. It always spreads by human actions like running an infected program, sharing infected files or sending/receiving emails with virus as attachments in the email.

What Is a Worm?

A worm is a sub-class of a virus and is similar to a virus by design, but unlike a virus, it has the capability to travel without any human action. A worm takes advantage of file or information transport features on your system, which allows it to travel unaided. Its capability to replicate itself on your system is the biggest danger with a worm. Rather than your computer sending out a single worm, it will send hundreds or thousands of copies of itself, creating a huge devastating effect. Due to the replicating nature and capability to travel across networks the worm consumes too much system memory and cause servers, network servers and personal computers to stop responding. The Blaster Worm has been designed to tunnel into your system and allow cyber criminals to take control of your computer remotely.

What Is a Trojan horse?

Trojan Horse mostly appear to be coming from a legitimate software vendor or files from a legitimate source.  It usually tricks the user to open them and it is full of as much trickery as the mythological Trojan Horse was named after. The Trojan Horse, at first glance will appear to be useful software but it will actually do severe damage to your machine if installed or run on your computer.  Some Trojans are designed to be more annoying than malicious code by actions like changing your desktop, adding silly active icons to your desktop. Unlike viruses and worms, Trojans do not have the capability reproduce to infect other files nor they self-replicate. Trojans are also notorious to create a backdoor on your system to give access to malicious users to your system, There is a strong possibility of compromising or being stolen your confidential or personal information.

What Are Blended Threats?

A blended threat is a more sophisticated attack. It is a bundle of a number of the worst aspects of Trojan horses, viruses, worms, and malicious code in a single threat. Servers and Internet vulnerabilities are used by blended threats to initiate,  transmit and spreading attacks. Multiple methods are used by blended threats to propagate. They attack from multiple points simultaneously to infect system cause severe harm to the system or network. It wouldn't just launch a DDoS attack but it would also, install a backdoor and may even damage a local system in a single attack. At the same time it may modify your exe files, HTML files and registry keys. Since the inception of virus, Blended threats are considered to be the worst risk to security.  A blended threat “CodeRed” processes in the system memory and not on a hard drive which allows it to bypass anti-virus products.

How to set blog header text and blog header banner side by side

How to set blog header text and blog header banner side by side-Bloggers use various techniques to decorate their blog headers. Some use blog header text only and others use blog header banner but some of the bloggers use both blog header text and blog header banner. Those using these both, use either the blog header banner first(in left side) and then blog header banner(in the right side) or vice versa i.e. the blog header text first(in left side) and then blog header text(in the right side). In both the conditions, the blog header appears beautiful if set properly. Here I will discuss how we can set these is an excellent way.

Resize your blog header text and blog header banner before upload

Before you upload your blog header text and blog header banner in a way that their width is exactly equal and the length of both can fit in side your page size. Here note that individual length of the blog header text and blog header banner may be different but their total length must fit within the page.

Setting the blog header text and blog header banner using the blogger template designer and adding a small HTML

This a very easy setting and we can easily do it using the blogger template designer and adding a small HTML code there. Following is a simple procedure to do it-
1.    Login to your blogger Dashboard using your blogger ID and password.
2.    Click template.
3.    Click customize.
4.    Click Advanced.
5.    Click Add CSS
6.    The following screen will appear


You will need to add the following CSS code here in the empty box.

#header-inner {
background-position: right !important;
width: 100% !important;
}
.titlewrapper, .descriptionwrapper {
float: left;
clear: both;
margin-left: 20px;
}

If you want to place your text on the left and banner on the right, this code is perfect but if you want your banner image on the left ant text on the right then follow the above process replacing right with left and replacing left with right.  

You can set new left margin by changing 20px to any other figure.
