ESET Rootkit Detector beta 1 is now available for testing. This is a new program from ESET's researchers for detecting malicious kernel extensions that hook into system functions and modify the kernel's memory space in order to redirect disk and file I/O (i.e., stealth mechanisms typically used by rootkits). If a rogue kernel extension is found, the user will be prompted to submit it to ESET's researchers for analysis.
