    Actually, if you look a little more closely, there are two trojans being talked about in this article.

    One, that's traditionally been installed via the user under the guise of being a legit software package and has now been repackaged. And the second which is installed the same way.

    Sure, physical access is required, however, that access appears to be provided by the legit user of the machine. The people who wrote the malicious code are/could be counting on tricking the user into unknowingly installing it themselves.
