- Difference between virus and trojan? 7 answers
I would like to know what a trojan looks like.
There was a great example of a worm (although it is old) posted by Wired. Viruses embed themselves into an existing program, by changing the existing code (if I am not mistaken).
On the other hand, I have no idea what trojans look like. Are they for example an executable file, which installs the desired software but also adds a backdoor?
Edit: I just posted another question, where I tried to specify what exactly I would like to know. Sorry for the "spam" and confusion.
