Trojan Horse

Trojan Horse

This is a program that performs some undesired yet intended action while or in addition to, pretending to do something else. One common class of trojans are fake login programs for example, collecting accounts and passwords by prompting for this info just like a normal login program does. Another is a ?Disk Defragger? that erases files rather than reorganizing them. A Trojan Horse does not attempt to reproduce itself.
