Others with more technical savvy than I can weigh in on this question, 
but my impression is that r-sync, by its nature as a utility which must 
be installed and then have specific values entered, presents a lesser 
exploitability by bot masters, who are opportunistic, than simply making 
use of more ubiquitous internet-accessing programs such as browsers and 
updaters.    In that sense, r-sync seems to present no more a threat 
-less in fact- than HtTrack or other website copying software.
