    After the original article about cDc's Back Orifice, I received a lot of
    mail asking if my opinion on it, if it was real, etc. 
    After attending Defcon6 and seeing a working demo of it, I can say yes..
    it is quite real, and very well written. One thing the early article
    didn't make extremely clear, is that it IS a trojan. You must get the user
    to run it on their machine. Once done, BO acts almost as a "rootkit"
    allowing easy access to the machine, but with remote control over it.
    This does not contain the utility yet! But this should be the distribution
    point when it is put up.
