The TROJANS.DAT file was created specifically for the retail & deluxe VirusScan version 4.00 and should only be used with those products. More notably the Trojan.DAT has been specifically designed to ONLY detect AOL Password Stealing Trojans.

Customers using the TROJANS.DAT file with the corporate VirusScan version 3.20 or lower may experience a false detection and can safely delete that file if it exists.

Other customers, including users of the retail & deluxe VirusScan version 4.00, may also experience false a detection when using the TROJANS.DAT file. If you are confident that the file being detected is not a true infection, you can delete the TROJANS.DAT file, and can do so without opening yourself up to infection.
