    To be clear, this is a backdoor in the sense of an attacker putting a piece of code on the system that makes the system vulnerable, not a backdoor like some part of malicious code built into Linux.

    From the article I assume it's dropped.
    I wonder if it's due to mastermind trickery or perhaps just a case of 'sloppy admin'?

    Did you guys read the comments? They have a lot to say in there, minus the trolls.

    I wonder how it executes in the first place. Java? Flash? Something more subtle?
