FYI – Trojan Horses
The term Trojan horse comes from the Greek myth of the Trojan War, in which the Greeks give a giant wooden horse to their foes, the Trojans, ostensibly as a peace offering. But after the Trojans drag the horse inside their city walls, Greek soldiers sneak out of the horse's hollow belly and open the city gates, allowing their compatriots to pour in and capture Troy.
Trojans don’t replicate themselves like viruses do, but the consequences of a Trojan attack can be just as harmful to your computer. Having an internet security program with a Trojan horse remover will keep Trojans from taking over your computer system, deleting your files and passing on your credit card information to the attacker. Trojan horses come in many different shapes and don’t have one single method of breaching your system.
