    Can Ewido deal with Rootkits like HD?
    Or plan on it in it's next version?

    "It is curious that Hacker Defender's antidetection was implemented months ago and hasn't changed (except some minor bugfixes) since then. In spite of this fact, no security product is able to beat it today."

    Although the current ewido anti-malware has no special anti-rootkit-technologies, it can already detect hacker defender.

    The upcoming version 4.0 will feature a dedicated rootkit-scanner which is also able to detect it.

    Should go beta in some months, we are currently reworking the interface. However, we plan to prerelease parts of it like the anti-rootkit-scanner as seperate betas.
