Dr. Fred Cohen, a researcher at the University of South Carolina created for world’s first virus program twenty five years ago. His inspiration came from the story of the Trojan horse. Like the Trojan horse left behind by the Greeks fooled the Trojans into letting their soldiers in, he worked on the possibility of hackers gaining access to a system and duplicate itself.
Trojans have come a long way from then and today are responsible for 83% of all malware and security threats. Trojan horses often go undetected, but using a particular program might activate them and they can cause extreme harm to a computer and pose great security issues. But not to worry, a good antivirus program that’s updated often should help you keep your computer safe!
