Rootkits Get Better at Hiding


CNet is running a story on the new Rustock/Mailbot.AZ malware making the rounds. The hiding methods used by Rustock are certainly a threat, but hardly anything new. If anything this is a good example of a piece of malware that amalgamates the different methods together.

Is anyone actually surprised this happened? Is Greg Hoglund going to pop a vein when he sees CNet headlining Rootkits == Malware?
