Yep, when I see that:
WASTE - license.cpp
Copyright (C) 2003 Nullsoft, Inc.
Copyright (C) 2004 WASTE Development Team

Then that:

Followed by a full binary only array, I feel it like you: it might be a good 
place for a backdoor, given that TOUCH AND DIE seems very strange refering to 
GPL licence...

I'm shouting an email to the public mailing list, CCed  the bug adress.

If you are the big tree,
We are the small axe,
Ready to cut you down,
Sharpen to cut you down....
