<application, security> (Coined by MIT-hacker-turned-NSA-spook Dan
Edwards) A malicious, security-breaking program that is disguised as something
benign, such as a directory lister, archiver, game, or (in one notorious 1990
case on the Mac) a program to find and destroy viruses! A Trojan horse is
similar to a back door.
