This term became common among hackers after it came to light in early that Microsoft had attempted to use such tactics to forestall the U. Department of Justice's antitrust action against the company. This backfired horribly, angering a number of state attorneys-general enough to induce them to go public with plans to join the Federal suit.

Ken Thompson's Turing Award lecture to the ACM admitted the existence of a back door in early Unix versions that may have qualified as the most fiendishly clever security hack of all time.
Normally such a back door could be removed by removing it from the source code for the compiler and recompiling the compiler. And having done this once, he was then able to recompile the compiler from the original sources; the hack perpetuated itself invisibly, leaving the back door in place and active but with no trace in the sources. Ken Thompson has since confirmed that this hack was implemented and that the Trojan Horse code did appear in the login binary of a Unix Support group machine.
Ken says the crocked compiler was never distributed. A group of large-site administrators who pushed through the Great Renaming and reined in the chaos of Usenet during most of the s.
