The key to the exploit from the article:
The company specifically said that it is using an element of the kernel meant to help the OS support older hardware to bypass the feature. The loophole allows the company's tools to infiltrate Vista's kernel hooking driver, and get out, without the OS knowing the difference.
Who needs lawyers and APIs?"
From the Port 25 Blog:
This is where we would like some help. We can move forward with this based on our understanding and assumptions or we can involve our community and ensure that the "right" changes are being made. To this end we are seeking a small group of volunteers who would be willing to act as a review/guidance team. This endeavor should not be tremendously time consuming. We anticipate a single review/feedback cycle of existing content to get us started. After an initial pass we will request one to two more review cycles to ensure we are on the right path.
Not to be too skeptical but the "right" in quotes immediately raises a bit of suspicion."
