Do you fear or doubt these types of announcements? There are so many possibilities and weaknesses in systems and services.

According to: SoftPedia News

TechWorld reported today that a new type of malware that could be impossible to detect by the anti-virus technologies currently on the market has been developed by security researchers and will be demonstrated at the Black Hat security event scheduled for August in Las Vegas. The same source adds that the new rootkit could prove to be incredibly hard to detect first of all due to the fact that it stays in a “protected part of the computer memory”.

Just what I needed… another reason to tell my users to “just say no” to using computers.

Thanks for your time. Let’s be good network citizens together & practice safe networking!
