    Worm
    Worms can spread rapidly from device to device without using a programme. The worm can copy itself into an account and take your personal information.
    Trojan Horse
    This type of malware pretends to be something good but actually harms your computer, like the Trojan Horse story.

    I think they were created to deliberately steal someone’s money or accounts or private information that should be seen by no one. Ultimately, worms, Trojan Horses and spyware could destroy someone’s life. That’s why it is so important to keep your personal data to yourself.

    A virus is something that can make your computer crash
    A worm can spread from any device to another device
    A Trojan horse is something that disguise itself to being something else.
