    This article,

    http://arstechnica.com/security/new...move-attack-from-theoretical-to-practical.ars

    talks about the problem of using SSDT Hooks and states that MOST AV vendors use them and are thus open to attacks. I can't find if ESET uses them. The article also gives a link to a test that can be run to see if one's AV software uses these, but I am not up to running it.

    Can anyone please comment on ESET's use of SSDT Hooks, yes/no, AND IF their use by ESET can cause the problems named in the article?
    If not, can someone run the test and inform us all of the results?
