I just read this page of a distribution named GoboLinux. This is the first GNU/Linux distribution I am aware of with built-in rootkit!!! GoboHide FTW!!! :P

Well it’s not as bad as it may sound, as long as you know that it exists, and you have a command to easily show them. Compare that with the Alternate Data Streams in Windows where you have no way to tell if they exist on a file from Explorer, and a lot of sysadmins are unaware of this “feature” to this date.

What job a sysadmin has if he is ignorant of such an important OS feature? :-)

Well some would argue that they have too much work to do to have the time to know such a feature. Depends on the point of view I guess ;-)

We thought noone would notice. Now we have to hunt you down, so you don’t tell anyone else. :P
Nah, it’s completly optional. Do what you like with it. :)
