    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

    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.
