    "Background processes"

    February 24, 2010  |   By decadence


    This review was originally posted on
    There is a constant background process running if you run BackTrack. I thought I'd been notified by the developer Bill that he'd seen fit to remove that process. Instead he's accused me of pirating his software and he's lied about what processes his software initiates. Way to build trust. I'm forced to downrate your software. Here's an article on alternative Mac OS X keyloggers. Why do so many Mac developers think they have the right to lie and install unwanted processes on their customers computers? Adobe is the worst offender. Consequently we have nearly banned Adobe Software from my company's offices. Getting the hint yet, Bill? We spend thousands on software every year and if you weren't inserting Trojan processes in your basic utility, we'd have probably bought it for all our Macs as well.
