Possible duplication of Malware[edit]

Assuming this is an important term (and not just one someone made up, that is ignored by the rest of the world), isn't it just a type of malware, distinguished only by the data it grabs?

In this case, won't any detailed discussion simply duplicate malware or other more specific articles, based on the malware's means of propagation or other effects?

I propose this be kept to a brief explanation of the difference between this and malware in general, with links to appropriate articles. - Paul (talk) 13:03, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Inconsistency in the introduction[edit]

There's a contradiction between the first and the third sentence – the first one suggests crimeware is a subset of malware, whereas the third one says that crimeware is not malware. Koniiiik (talk) 14:43, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Lack of detail in Delivery Vectors section[edit]

I added two citation requests for the "Delivery Vectors" section of this article. The lines were vague and unsupported by evidence, so they should either be investigated further or scrapped. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:05, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
