MSRT vs Hacker Defender

holy_father, the creator of the Hacker Defender rootkit, claims the MSRT (Microsoft Software Removal Tool) cannot successfully detect newer versions of the offensive rootkit:

"Microsoft claims that Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for XP/2000/2003 (MSRT) can detect Hacker Defender. I always test the latest MSRT with Hacker Defender, and the latest MSRT does not even detect the latest public version of Hacker Defender (hxdef 1.0.0 revisited), which was published weeks ago and is available for download to everyone, with full source code."
