Re: XLanuch.exe is a Trojan-It allows remote control of my pc without my knowledge or permission
I would also think about X11 permissions. Someone might be scanning
for activity on port 6000 (&c) and if they find something and it's not
locked down (see for example 'xhost(1)') it's trivial to just launch
X11 apps on your system which can cause all sorts of mischief.
