Yes,you are right, but you missed my point, which has nothing to do with
legitimate software manufacturers.

If I was a really smart computer literate anarchist with a lot of time,
knowledge and money on my hands and I wanted to raise a little hell, I would
develop a really good freeware antivirus program that would be freely
distributed all over the world, all with an embedded virus set up to trigger
at some future date.  Or better yet, develop the best, most secure firewall
program the world has ever seen, only it has a little back door that would
let me into any system that it is running on.  Fortunately for the computing
world, I spend all my time fixing Audi's and raising kids.
