The infection methods of Trojans and what is likely to happen after such a virus has attacked your machine

Like many other malware programs, the Trojans rely on a combination of different social engineering techniques and forms of disguise in order to trick the online users about their true nature and get downloaded and activated inside more and more computers. Typically, sites with bad reputation or ones that are outright illegal can be a likely source of those threats. This is especially true about illegal torrent sites, shady sites with adult content or gambling sites. Those are all likely to be filled with unsafe ads and clickbait prompts, and clicking on those could be very bad for the safety of your system.
