0wning Vista from the Boot
Thought this was an interesting read…
Page 2 particularly interesting.
Yes, very interesting. The only thing I can't understand is their explanation about it not touching the hard drive
we needed something that could load our code in kernel, without touching hard-disk.
Seems a contradiction, I guess they are talking about not hitting the file sytem rather than the disk!
The beauty of VBootkit lies in the fact that it isn't about someone else controlling your machine. It's about you controlling your own machine, so you can run software of your choosing. Vbootkit gives control back to the user.
I'm not a big fan of Digital Restriction Management so I also find this final quote amusing -)
