    Re: Root Kits

    Someone posted this up somewhere.. I forget where?

    http://searchwindowssecurity.techtar...224912,00.html

    The tools listed on the relevant page are wide and varied... Not had to use them as yet but still useful to know.

    Re: Root Kits

    Do what Ben says i.e. zap the entire OS and start again. It's only worth spending time trying to clean machines where reinstallation would involve a huge amount of manual configuration.

    In practice various utilities will happily find/remove rootkits, but they'll be lucky to detect and remove changes someone might have made via that rootkit. Figuring out whether it has happened is not easy... even when you've been cunning enough to do things like routinely capture file integrity data for your system via a boot CD/floppy.
