100% Undetectable Malware

July 3, 2006

Rootkit researchers have discovered a way to create malware that is 100% undetectable. An excerpt from the article:

Joanna Rutkowska, a stealth malware researcher at Singapore-based IT security firm COSEINC, says the new Blue Pill concept uses AMD’s SVM/Pacifica virtualization technology to create an ultra-thin hypervisor that takes complete control of the underlying operating system.

Rutkowska plans to discuss the idea and demonstrate a working prototype for Windows Vista x64 at the end at the SyScan Conference in Singapore on July 21 and at the Black Hat Briefings in Las Vegas on August 3.

All I gotta say to this is, WHY? Wait, better idea would be to read the paper and see if the researchers have missed something!
