Payload refers to the damaging function of a virus in the wild. Launching this damaging function may be dependent on a condition, the so-called payload trigger. The definition of payload is disputed, as some researchers also consider the use of system resources and transmission bandwidth as payload.
Some viruses have a payload date, when they actually do something. Payloads are like the clock ticking inside an infected a computer, a trigger date if you will, for when something will happen. For example, the Michelangelo virus may infect a computer and sit dormant until March 6th, when it erases the hard drive of the infected computer.
A payload refers to an action caused by a virus, whether it be as simple as leaving a tag ("have a good day") or causing more serious problems, as with ‘malicious payloads.' These viruses get more media attention than those that merely spread quickly, because they often cause enormous damage to a system. The usual form a malicious payload will take involves overwriting certain essential files and programs. However, whether the virus results in any kind of payload at all, it puts a drain on the systems resources. A payload is not the only way to damage your system, especially with combination malware becoming more prevalent.
