    Found a new tool for detecting the presence of rootkits:

    FLISTER for Windows (Tools section) and FLISTER - uncovering files hidden by Windows rootkits

    "FLISTER is a proof-of-concept code for detecting files hidden by both usermode and kernelmode Windows rootkits. It exploits the bugs in handling ZwQueryDirectoryFile() calls with ReturnSingleEntry set to TRUE. FLISTER works on Windows 2000, XP and 2003."

    As an example, if run on a system compromised by Hacker Defender (1.0), you will get an "error while scanning directory (err = 0xc000000f)" when it detects a hidden file. In the pic, the hidden file's name starts with "hx" and is not visible in Explorer (on the left).
