Submission + - Bootkit bypasses hard disk encryption

Sique writes: "The german technology news site Heise.de reports under the title Bootkit bypasses hard disk encryption: At the Black Hat security conference, Austrian IT security specialist Peter Kleissner presented a bootkit called Stoned which is capable of bypassing the TrueCrypt partition and system encryption. A bootkit combines a rootkit with the ability to modify a PC's Master Boot Record, enabling the malware to be activated even before the operating system is started."
