Re: Is it worth mentioning...

The AV *is* the trojan. Runs as "root", Snuffles through all your data and files, email, web traffic, news, ...., looking for interesting stuff. What "interesting stuff" is and how to handle it, is determined by someone else and you don't get to review it either.

You get to "trust" whatever TLA-sponsored outfit who sold you the AV software.
