DARPA Funded Startup to 'Bird-Dog' Rootkits 124

Ski_Bird writes "DARPA is funding a startup the supposedly has a unique approach to detect rootkits. The startup, Komoku, is ready to 'emerge from stealth mode with hardware and software-based technologies to fight the rapid spread of malicious rootkits.' They have a PCI card that doesn't necessarily determine that a rootkit is installed, only that the O/S has changed dramatically enough to warrant investigation. Microsoft, however, demonstrated a rootkit running in a virtual machine outside of the user's O/S workspace that made detection impossible."
