I maintain a large, high-traffic site, and I use Jenkins/Phing to deploy code updates from my GitHub repository. It basically just gets a new copy of the code from the repo, copies it to the server in a new build directory, and then Phing (among other tasks) deletes the symlink to the previous build and re-creates it pointing to the new build directory. This made it very easy to address this issue, because once I committed the change, I just had to deploy it and I had a clean codebase. This meant that if there were any files inserted onto the system (fortunately there weren't), they were rendered moot since they were no longer accessible from outside the server.
