Researchers Release Bootkit Code Targeting Windows 7

Two security researchers open-source code that can be used to take control of versions of the Microsoft Windows 7 x64 operating system. The team decided to release the code despite initial reservations over security.

“All we are trying [to do] is help more people understand the real enemy, malware … So, this might trigger up new ideas in [the] security industry to help solve the problem,” Kumar wrote. “We are still using age-old methods … to detect malware.”
