Not sure if urban dictionary should be a terminology pool for manual
pages.

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,

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 ?
