Answer / guest

Answer: C

Worms are nonreplicating programs that can run independently
and travel from machine to machine. A trojan horse resembles
a commonly used authorized program that does something
unrelated to its stated or intended purpose causing a
malicious or fraudulent action or event to occur. Viruses
are malicious program code inserted into other executable
code that can self-replicate and spread from computer to
computer. Logic bombs are programmed threats that lie
dormant in commonly used software for an extended period of
time until they are triggered.
