If you currently have TrendMicro Anti-Virus installed, you may want to purge it immediately and get something that isn't a rootkit written by muppets:

TL;DR: When launched, TMAV opens several ports and listens for commands (presumably from TrendMicro). The security on these ports is essentially nil, which means that malicious actors can trivially exploit TMAV's services to completely pwn your machine.
