Linux Trojan Discovered

A company called Qualys "discovered" a new Trojan Horse that attacks Linux. It seems to me like Qualys is just trying to make a name for itself. The only way this Trojan can cause problems is if the root user would manually run it. In other words, it's a danger if you are a moron. The company claims this Trojan could have the impact of Code Red. I suppose that could be true, if Linux sysadmins would all suddenly get a lobotomy. Perhaps they don't understand the different between a Trojan Horse and a buffer overflow exploit? Thanks Linux Today.
