What OS?

A very good trojan can be made effectively invisible by modifying all
operating system fuctions that would look for the trojan.

Under Unix, fo example, one would modify `ps` and a number of other
utility programs. Or, you could (theoretically) modify the kernel
directly.

However, this is difficult and most people are lazy.
