    It depends on who you talk to. A "web bug" can be a form of spyware, and a virus is a form of malware.

    Re: bugs and viruses

    True, but don't confuse matters with a simple question. = )

    Bugs refer to glitches in software due to accidents or unexpected behaviors. Viruses are a particular type of malware. Malware in general is any code or program written for malicious reasons, such as to steal your data or damage your system.

    For questions like this, start with a little Google searching, or take a look at the Wikipedia entries.
