  • Intel basically supports rootkits

    They've been putting off fixing it for 4 years so I'd say they are supporting it.

    A bit extreme but something should have been done, I will say that for this to work I believe the hacker needs access to the hardware or at least that is what I have heard

      "Root kits" where used at a place I worked.

      Wonderful things., really. Allowed us to control our sales reps laptops no matter what they did. Saved some vary valuable data.

          They might end up rendering your hard drive unusable. Does that count?

            As EGG shows, a rootkit in the right hands is a Good Thing.

            In fact, virtual machines (VMs) are really just rootkits at heart. They trick an OS into thinking it's running on a real machine all by itself.
