Unlike the worms that are directly damaging the system (crashes) then as if the trojan is usually seen as a good program so it is difficult to be detected. The spread of venom through the major trojan internet activity, when a person is not downloading apps from the official source in it have infected Trojan source code, for other spread normally through executable files with EXE or COM extension.
