A trojan horse is a type of malware that poses as another piece of software to trick you into installing it
Time and time again, computers seem to get infected with a plethora of
harmful pieces of software – viruses, rootkits, spyware – all under the
inclusive banner of “malware.” These invasive programs are known for
stealing identities, destroying data, and generally creating digital chaos.

Imagine if there was a type of computer program that could install itself on your computer, then allow multiple pieces of malware to run, undetected by your virus scanner. What if this program could even consume your entire operating system – so far as to make it usable by hackers without your knowledge? And what if this program could run entirely without you even noticing?
Living in Fresno isn’t always the safest thing in the world – dangerous traffic, shady characters, or computer viruses infecting your work or home computer. These viruses are nasty!

There are spies in Fresno. No, seriously. They’re not like James Bond or even like Mata Hari or Aldrich Ames, but they are spies. Throw away your image of dapperly-dressed double-agents in double-breasted suits and evening attire. These are more like hackers, malicious programmers sneaking around behind the scenes that create code to steal your credit cards, social security numbers, and personal information. The programs they create are called spyware, and it is one of the biggest threats facing anyone who wants to do any sort of personal business over the internet. The number of people trying to conduct any sort of financial transaction online is growing, and trends indicate that most people with internet access will do this at least once.
