I had one in a server at home about a year ago. Nasty bugger that took me
several days to ferret out and kill. It came in through a vulnerability in
Mail Enable and hooked itself into several system level DLLs.. I've since
switched to an internet hosting company and shut down my home server, I was
less expensive to host elsewhere.
