    Hello,

    The first public beta of ESET Rootkit Detector for Mac OS X is now available for download from ESET's Beta Tester's Potal.

    ESET Rootkit Detector is a new program from ESET's researchers that provides an easy way for Mac users to see if their OS X installation is affected rootkits, which under OS X can take the form orf rogue kernel extensions that hook into system functions in order to modify the kernel's memory space.

    When run, ESET Rootkit Detector checks for the presence of rogue kernel extensions and, if found, offers to send them in to ESET's researchers for further analysis.

    For further information:

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
