The live-cd solution will work perfectly _assuming_ the binary makes no effort to ensure it is running on a real installation. So my primary concern is gaining access to the network again without any changes to my system As a secondary concern, I would like to figure out what the binary is doing every step of the way and publishing the results for others to be aware of. Thanks everyone for your great responses. I definitely have some research to do in this new and very intriguing area of system management and security.
