Submission + - Authentium claims Vista kernel access sans APIs

HoosierPeschke writes: "eWeek is running a story about the security company Authentium bypassing Microsoft's PatchGuard system in its new Windows Vista Operating System.

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?"

There is never time to do it right, but always time to do it over.

Working...
