Root it out.


RootkitRevealer. Root Kit = nasty kind of  malware. RootkitRevealer = detector. Definitely worth remembering.

 The term rootkit is used to describe the mechanisms and techniques whereby malware, including viruses, spyware, and trojans, attempt to hide their presence from spyware blockers, antivirus, and system management utilities…RootkitRevealer is an advanced root kit detection utility. It runs on Windows NT 4 and higher and its output lists Registry and file system API discrepancies that may indicate the presence of a user-mode or kernel-mode rootkit. RootkitRevealer successfully detects all persistent rootkits published at www.rootkit.com

    The bad guys can get around the RootKitRevealer (and apparently, others), avoid this by renaming the .exe to something else. Details HERE.

    Ah thanks Peter. Hmm..so yes you apparently do need to change the name of the rootkitrevealer.exe file to something ‘long and imaginative’. It’s definitely an arms race isn’t it, as they say on the forum.
