That is concerning, but hopefully our security suites can detect these malware infections.

When your security suite detects an intrusion, your system is already compromised. Your house has been burgled and the villains are down the road with your flat screen television!

The only 100% safe thing to do if an intrusion has been detected - any intrusion - is to flatten and rebuild.
