TROJANS:

Programs that appear legitimate but do something illicit when run.

 

Just like the wooden horse the Greeks gave Troy as a "gift", users mistake the Trojan for a useful or interesting program that they choose to download.

 

Once installed and run, Trojans can secretly open remote access channels to hackers, relay passwords and credit card data or destroy user files.

 

 It's similar to a virus but generally does not replicate itself.
