Trojan Detection

Simple Definition for Beginners: Trojan detection is the process of identifying and removing malicious software programs (Trojans) from a computer system to prevent unauthorized access and data theft. Common Use Example: Antivirus software scans a computer system regularly to detect and remove Trojans that may have been inadvertently downloaded by the user. Technical Definition for Professionals: Trojan detection refers to the techniques and tools used to identify and mitigate Trojan horse malware, which disguises itself as legitimate software to gain unauthorized access or cause damage. Key aspects of Trojan detection include: · Signature-Based Detection: Using predefined patterns or signatures to identify known Trojans based on their code or behavior. · Heuristic Analysis: Employing algorithms to detect suspicious behavior or characteristics that may indicate the presence of a Trojan. · Behavioral Analysis: Monitoring system activities to detect abnormal behavior that could be indicative of a Trojan infection. · Network Monitoring: Analyzing network traffic to detect and block communication with command and control servers used by Trojans. · Sandboxing: Running suspicious files in isolated environments (sandboxes) to observe their behavior without risking system compromise.
