What is the most common computer virus? How does it function?

That would be the Trojan horse class of viruses.
They spread by... well telling your grandma they need to install the virus to see your sister's baby pictures. They don't install via some hardware or software flaw, but the flaw between the keyboard and the seat, the user.
The user will give the virus any access it requests, because most users don't care.
