They have installed on millions of machines a whole substrate for all
known attacks.  But that required no subtlety, given the ignorance of the
mass media, and the refusal of Apple, Sun, IBM, etc. to offer a competing
substrate.  The subtlety came in making people pay for the use of the
substrate.  The joke does not end there.  Those who use the substrate
without turning on its stealth service are subject to prosecution in
several jurisdictions.
