The great part about this (its been on slashdot twice now) is that the malware keeps you (and anything else) from seeing files wiht $sys$ as the first part of the file name. So now virus writers and skript kiddies can call their packages $sys$nastything.exe and it won't be detectable. Also, some cheats for various online games like World of Warcraft are using it for the same purpose.
