A trojan is a type of malicious software (malware) that appears to be something useful or safe, but in reality, it is performing background tasks such as giving access to your computer or sending personal information to other computers. Trojan horses are one of the most common methods a hacker uses to infect computers and collect personal information from the machine. 




Most employees get work done through desktop computers, which is why security for desktop computers is so important. If an unauthorized person gains access into your work computer, your organization’s confidential information will be at risk.
