Secret police wants to frame you... pulls you over.. "Please sit in the back of my car and look at something". "Right ! You're nicked!!"
Please say that this is not possible in the scope of this law.

Once knew a fella who usually worked in a small data center where the staff door exit release was a big green button.
The data center that he rarely went to on the floor below had a similar looking button, but was for emergency power down.
You can guess what happened...
I'm sure I read an essay from either Brian Kernighan or Dennis Ritchie, where they speculated that you could insert bad code into the compiler source, then compile the compiler, then drop the old compiler. Now all you have is a compiler that even with just a 'Hello World' will create a binary that might not be what you think it is..
How would we know if this has already happened ?
