FBlit 3.84 ( Also Aminet ) also exibits grave suspicions, installing 2 tasks called zakahackandpatch and meddling with the HD, after stupidly installing it.
This seems to be the second hack/trojan/backdoor, after the StackAttack one distributed on the same day.

I meant meddles as in accessing or trying to access files
