This information can include sensitive data such as passwords, financial information, or personal data. Trojan spyware can be installed on a victim's computer without their knowledge through email attachments, downloads from malicious websites, or drive-by downloads. Once installed, the spyware can be difficult to detect and remove, as it may masquerade as a legitimate program or file.
