It's code running as the user invoking it; it's not in any way restricted to
solely interfacing GnuPG. And if you have plans to attack people who use GnuPG,
putting your backdoor in a GUI for GnuPG means your backdoor ends up at people
you want to target. So it makes sense to put your backdoor there, and not in
something else.


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
