    Exclamation Microsoft developing a rootkit detection tool

    Also some good resource material here:

It targets the fundamental weakness of hiding rootkits, and turns the hiding behavior into its own detection mechanism.
    Of course, we all know SysInternals RootkitRevealer (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/fr...itreveal.shtml) but the Microsoft tool seems to be more comprehensive.

    Naturally, but if you secure your comps and don't allow intrusion, you're okay. I know, easier said than done (for most). At least there will be means of detection.
