When I used to use ms windows I experienced trojan virus many times, but since I use Linux this problem is simply disappeared. New trojans are made everyday, but they can only attack windows based computers because windows has a lot of bugs. Trojan viruses are made to steal users informations like credit card numbers saved on hard disk, so there trojans keep coming out.

u are completely right, viruses are mainly made to attack windows , linux provides very strong security though as not user friendly as windows

trojans are bound to be there, they are not viruses as such but something like a software or something which allows viruses to enter, that is like giving a free entry ticket into your computer.it is very dangerous as it can move to other computers as well through internet, i dont think they can be erradicated , the only way out is to stop programmers from writing new virus codes everyday

Haha virus is seen all over the internet. Anti virus have to keep up their business so there is a chance of new Trojans and virus programs being coming into the market.

i have an antivirus working on my laptop and to make sure that trojan is taken away for a while i go to trend micro for a free house call for clean up , though it takes more than 2 hours for the clean up but it gets the work done.try it out , i usually do my trend micro house calls every week since i am always in the net.it's for free.

oh, just to add, they come from hackers .everytime a hacker gets into a system to get information for their clients or someone trying to break some codes, they leave something behind which is called a virus.at times it, there are companies letting them out so their anti virus can be used by their clients then come up with a new one to introduce a new product where their product is the only one can cure it.
