comment is it possible to keep something invisible to the server admin?
Correct. This is probably the reason this post was migrated here: "how do I make sure my sysadmin can't steal my secrets?" is a question with no simple, sure and foolproof solution (other than "hire comeone you can trust").

comment Why do malware creators use such clever technologies for such silly purposes?
Well, of course a total system wipe and reinstall followed soon after. Which, again, it wouldn't have... if the infection was hidden instead of blatantly obvious.

comment Why are hash functions one way? If I know the algorithm, why can't I calculate the input from it?

Sure. But mine was just an example, there are many more useful things a malware could do than displaying ads... which is also the worst thing it can do as long as "going unnoticed" is concerned.

I think you misunderstood my question. It was more along the lines of "why do they make the presence of malware obvious by showing ads when they could just have it sit there and steal your credit card number unnoticed?".
