    Kernel Malware: The Attack from Within

    PDF by Kimmo Kasslin F-Secure
    presented in Dec at AVAR 2006 (Anti-Virus Asia Researchers)
    from what I can tell released February 22nd

    interesting reading and far more technical than the abstract would lead you to believe. Most would find the intermediate level of interest specifically Full-Kernel vs Semi-Kernel Malware, Kernel Mode vs User Mode, and History & Trends of Kernel Malware


    (I have searched extensively to see if this was previously posted but came up empty)

    Thank You for that PDF report ICE, every paper on the more technical aspects laid out in detail like this offers a better prospective on just how to fine tune our own configs with the security programs we use to filter those type intrusions.
