As the internet has grown and millions of people are online, so has the development of other types of software pests such as 'Trojan software'
A Trojan is an application that appears to do something useful such as a computer game (which is why you loaded it on to your computer in the first place) but quietly, behind the scenes it is doing something with ill-intent.
A trojan may:-
- Log all your keystrokes and then send the details to a remote computer / server. Used to capture your passwords
- Allow someone else to take control of your computer whilst you are online.
- Capture screen shots and send them to a remote computer, once again with the intent of obtaining confidential information such as financial screen shots.
