The catch phrase in 2005 was, “We are raising the bar [again] for rootkit detection.” Hopefully the reader has walked away with a better understanding of how the top rootkit detection programs are detecting hidden processes and how they can be improved.

A new tool called RAIDE (Rootkit Analysis Identification Elimination) will be unveiled in the coming months at Blackhat Amsterdam[8].
