Hackers Find a New Place to Hide Rootkits

Security researchers have developed a new type of malicious rootkit software that hides itself in an obscure part of a computer’s microprocessor, hidden from current antivirus products.

Called a System Management Mode (SMM) rootkit, the software runs in a protected part of a computer’s memory that can be locked and rendered invisible to the operating system, but which can give attackers a picture of what’s happening in a computer’s memory.

The proof-of-concept software will be demonstrated publicly for the first time at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas this August.
