* Un-removable Malware?

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
MS has released a whitepaper that indicates the next generation of malware might not be removable thanks to software techniques that could actually insert the software "under" the operating system.



The trick works by intercepting certain base OS calls, and getting them to "lie" to the OS...



We have tested this diff-based tool successfully in the lab against several real-world system monitoring programs. The simplicity and effectiveness of the approach suggest that the following quote on the Internet may no longer be true: ?When you can get the dir command to lie, it?s all over.? In the post-GhostBuster world: ?The best way to hide is not trying to hide.?
Ouch.
