Submission + - Vista & XP Security Flaw - Rootkit exploit in (antirootkit.com)

Paul writes: "In early Devember 2007 a new rootkit that hides itself in the Master Boot Record (MBR) of a users disk was spotted in the wild. Up until then this was more of a proof of concept (POC). This goes to show how much effort rootkit authors are putting in to creating new ways of evading Anti Rootkit software. This is a new vector of attack for malware writers and gives them control from outside the Operating System."
