If you accept changed host keys you might as well run unencrypted traffic. No malware scanner
can help you there. You can be victim to any number of other tricks, including DNS spoofing.

Of course. And I know the painful side of this. The problem here is rather than having an illusion of security (as it often is with poor inadequate software), lack the proposed file-access mechanisms is providing me with no information. For me, no information is probably as bad as having the wrong information - if configured so, virus scanners do well to inform network admins.
