Yes. But while you're on the subject, there's no need to reinvent the wheel here. The CdC (Cult of the Dead Cow)'s BackOrifice software would do everything you needed it to, and hides itself fairly well.
Having said that, I hope that this settles the technical question and that those interested may now stop talking about it here and discuss further plans via a non-public channel. Really, the last thing you guys need is for some enforcement agent to go searching the web for +GIMPS and +virus and find your post (on the extropian maliing list archives) at the top of the list.
Not to mention the fact that cracking is probably off-topic on the extropian lists, but that's really secondary.
