Also, there's clearly a hyphen missing: ``trojan-horsed''. No capital T obviously since the term is common computer language and not a book, a city, etc. ;) Cheers, Franco

As Henning notes, it was gramatically correct as written (if you are willing to accept trojan horse as a neologisticized verb), although potentially confusing to non-native speakers. I wonder if it might be better style to say smth like: a trojan-infested binary or ?
