    This backdoor is targetting systemd and gvfs.

    It is not very surprising that systemd is targetted, since it is
present (by force) in most installed Linux systems.

    Gvfs is not expected to be installed on servers, but is required by
some desktop goodies - even in Xfce4, for example if you install the
tool to mount/unmount hotplug disks; it is primarily to avoid it that I
developped hopman.
