Wiki – Malware

Malware (short for malicious software) is any software intentionally designed to cause damage to a computer, server or computer network.  Malware does the damage after it is implanted or introduced in some way into a target’s computer and can take the form of executable code, scripts, active content, and other software.

The term malware was first used by computer scientist and security research Yisrael Radai in 1990.
