trojan horse i'd say
And so, today i had a surprise lunch freebie with one of the chinese PMs, and we talked about the history behind the total distrust of both sides around the system.

Things do not just appear this way due to a simple incident, nor is it due to plain personal conflicts.

Let's just say that it involves a trojan horse and lack of accountability.

From an AV perspective, once you are on the dark side, you aint got no trust anymore. A system that allows a trojan writer to continue on doesn't deserve trust, and should not demand trust. It's kind of like what gogopixels said recently.

Even though now most of the direct parties involved have moved on, the bridges are all burnt and it will be long before they are reestablished again.

Now that he has knowledge about it, he says that he has more awareness of why certain things are the way they are.
