For other uses, see Trojan Horse.

The Trojan horse was, in the epic poem The Aeneid, a wooden horse presented as gift to the city of Troy during the Trojan War which, when brought inside the city gates, was discovered to hold Greek troops inside. Over time, the term "Trojan horse" has come to mean any seemingly benign object which holds a hidden threat or danger.

The term is also used in computer programming, to describe a damaging program disguised as a non-dangerous one. (VOY short story: "A Taste of Spam")
