Interesting that in the last group of photos there is a new intake dust filter fitted, but not any sort of exhaust baffles in any of the photos.

In the brochure, linked by Triton, those dust filters are listed as optional equipment.
Some more photos from the ATE website :

As a company ATE is in serious trouble, it has been in Business Rescue Proceedings (South African equivalent of Chapter 11) since the back-end of 2011. Eurocopter were going to invest and effectively take ownership but the shareholders rejected the deal and the company is now going round international aerospace firms with a begging bowl.

There was a proposed Super Hind Mk V that involved building and entirely new composite forward fuselage/pilot WSO section, I believe the attached image is of the mock-up.

The Russian's were really not happy about the ATE Hinds and for a long time they were refusing to cooperate with the programme and there were threats of legal action- I dont how that ended though.

As has been mentioned, it is surprising that there is no standard exhaust diffusion. I would have thought that the IR vulnerability would be addressed as it would be a simple and cheap method of reducing risk.
