* MS hunting for Rootkits

Microsoft's been updating their defenses, with their Worm cleansing software now actively hunting down certain rootkits.

Stephen Toulouse, program manager at the Microsoft Security Response Center, told eWEEK.com that the decision to add Hacker Defender to the worm zapper was the result of feedback from users.

In all, Toulouse said four child variants of the stealth rootkit will be detected. Hacker Defender (Win32/Hackdef) is a family of backdoor Trojans capable of creating, changing and hiding Windows system resources on a computer that it has infected.
It's a big step forward; let's hope they keep doing this. Too many users wouldn't be able to get rid of these things on their own.
