What are Trojans?
A Trojan is a malicious ‘hidden’ program that is installed when you download a program you want.
Sometimes a Trojan can cause damage to your computer.
Sometimes it can capture your keystrokes as you type, sending confidential details, like passwords, to criminals.
To protect yourself:
- Don’t download programs if they’re not from trusted sources – that great freeware programme might come with a Trojan
- Take care when you open email attachments, software and music downloads
