It's been approximately 2 months since the original discovery of Linux/Bckdr-RKC

This Linux trojan is still undetected, according to

In fact, it would appear that even Sophos is no longer detecting this trojan.

I have resubmitted the file to multiple antivirus vendors, in hopes that they may pay attention to my submission this time.

For those who aren't familiar with this trojan, an anonymous internet user has taken the time to put together a Pastebin post highlighting my research on this trojan.

I'd also like to take the time to point out that you can view the decompiled source of this trojan at my malware research Google code project:

Keep fighting the good fight.

Red Hat releases Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2
