:_THAT_ is a far larger problem you should have considered long 
:before you discovered that one (or more) of the many 
:"band-aid" programs (like MS AntiSpyware, most other 
:anti-spywares, known virus scanning "antivirus" programs, 
:software firewalls, and so on) so commonly advocated by lame 
:(or hamstrung) system admins has this (and dozens of
:other) trivial, stupid holes.

Would you please elaborate futhur on this? I read it to say we should have
cleaned out the machines first by hand and we are lame or hamstrug for
relying on anti-virus, anti-spyware programs to find them.
