Rootkits

Interesting information in the August issue of PC World
magazine -- pages 36 and 82.  Also mention of two new
rootkit detectors (in addition to RootkitRevealer from
sysinternals.com, and F-Secure's BlackLight) here:

Apparently rootkits are fast becoming the next big threat.

They have been for some time.  You will also find that alot of the
'premium' suites like KIS, ZASS, etc. now claim to detect/handle/defeat
rootkits.  Alternatively you can go for some of the better HIPS
applications like ProcessGuard, etc. that also protect against them.
