lol, they give cleanup instructions?!?! If you been root kitted in todays age, you need to toss out your hard drive and probably your motherboard too in some cases. They can get pretty low... We really have the technology to stop this if someone wants to take virtual machines in the right direction... Also need to segregate common traffic more than currently done. which is hard for me to say since its a step closer to communism.
It's not a root kit, it's an exploit. An exploit that can be used to give you a rootkit, granted, but not directly a rootkit.

As far as paranoia regarding whether we all have been rooted thanks to the exploit, that's further down the rabbit hole.
