Malware, short for malicious software, is any software used to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. Hackers install malware on popular web sites by exploiting security weaknesses on their servers and thus gaining full access to the compromised web site. In most cases the malicious code is not visible or easily detected, and it infects computers of web site visitors when they simply browse this web site.

The risk is that once a malware infects certain computer, hackers then can take advantage of those compromised devices in various ways, including: logging users' keystrokes, using the compromised computer to send spam, converting it to become a part of a bot, distribute more malware or simply modify search results provided by search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo.
