Viruses, Trojan Horses, Worms, etc - differences

Posted on 2007-12-06
Last Modified: 2010-04-11

I've always wondered what the differences are between all of the widely-talked about (and probably overhyped) computer "sicknesses"

I was hoping someone who knows could possibly compare and contrast between virus, trojan horse, worm, and whatever else is supposed to be out there!
