« on: June 29, 2006, 09:04:02 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

The rootkit expert Joanna Rutkowska from Warszawa has created a 100% undetectable malware with her "blue pill" prototype,

Thanks for the info polonus.
YLAP I have to agree with you. Not the kind of news any of us need.
Hopefully it's being worked on.

Hi Bob,

As I know pani Joanna will come up with her own solution(s) to this prototype as the hidden rootkit problem, she is a malware fighter and analyst as well. Well the detection is not going to come easy from the "guest" computer, but from outside. As the silent flash disks are coming in soon, we will be in for some more nice "malware" surprises. That is why "the old pol" thinks that we eventually cannot do without an AV solution from another partition with another OS running on it or a Windows image files on aforementioned platform. The fight has not be fought yet, see the successes recently the "picture-spammers" booked. Malware and money a deadly cocktail, folks.

Hi DavidR,

Want a bit of a headache from watching this video: http://invisiblethings.org/papers/rutkowska-bhfed2006-demos.rar

Swallow the blue pill, and wake up inside the virtual matrix.

Don't worry, be happy. This is one of the most inaccurate technical articles I have ever seen. They either altered her speech so that it sounds more sensational, or she's full of s**t (sorry for the lovely expression).

There has never been any perfect detection system and there hasn't been any perfect malware either. So i call it even and forget the whole thing.

Well vlk,

I don't know why this is, the link is from her own homepage. There is so much dis-information all around. There is even an AV firm that offers you a one button AV solution. You have to have learnt to evaluate properly to come at the facts. Alas for what it is worth,
