The nature of the threat to PC users has changed significantly over the years. Today's threats are more complex than ever before. Much of today's 'Malware' [short for malicious software], which includes Trojans, backdoors and spammers' proxy servers as well as viruses and worms, is purpose-built to hijack users' machines; and a single Trojan can easily be found on many thousands of infected PCs. Malicious code may be embedded in e-mail, injected into fake software packs, or placed on 'Grey-zone' web pages for download by a Trojan installed on an infected machine. There has also been a growth in spyware, adware, dialers and other 'Unwanted', but non-viral, programs. The scale of the problem, in terms of numbers alone, has also continued to increase.
