Anti-malware vs Anti-virus

Recommended Posts

If you read some magazine reviews you will see that while most AV software claims to cover both, some aren't that good at it so a two tier approach is safest. Particularly if you like file sharing and searching the more dubious areas of the net.

Anti-virus is specific. However, you can argue that it is more than just virus (...that which duplicates itself...)when it concerns computers.

Anti-malware is more general. As such it includes anti-virus, anti-spyware, worms trojans...
