Unless you're talking about inserting a proxy in-line and manually grabbing

off-base.  There is no malware I know of that would even know what the
packets were, muchless re-assemble them into the original document, insert
itself, and pass it on.  Maybe by 2104...



I don´t know why, but I suddenly recall two statements, one of them famous
already:

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."
Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

"I'm always in favor of security research, and I have enjoyed following the
developments in quantum cryptography. But as a product, it has no future."
Bruce Schneier, Crypto-Gram Newsletter December 15, 2003
