MBR Rootkit and Other Interesting Toys
Cult of the Dead Cow released their Goolag scanner last week. I haven't played with it personally. It sounds and looks neat, but I can't afford to download CDC software and hope that they didn't install a backdoor or some such. Perhaps later when I have a virtual XP machine reconfigured.
Core Security found a way for a VMware guest operating system to break out using the shared folder between the host OS and the guest OS. Oops! It appears VMware has known about it for a while now. Never a dull day in IT Security.
