Comment: Re:known security flaws (Score 1) 336

by anphanax (#14896654) Attached to: Microsoft Research Warn About VM-Based Rootkits
"We used our proof-of concept [rootkits] to subvert Windows XP and Linux target systems and implemented four example malicious services," the researchers wrote in a technical paper describing the attack scenario."

This doesn't sound like it's just a Windows problem. Regardless of the operating system, there are flaws, both known and unknown. I'm aware the article mentions that it exploits known security flaws (I wish they would have specified whether these flaws were in the latest patched Windows/Linux distributrions).

Chemist who falls in acid is absorbed in work.
