    I read about this idea sometime ago and have seen a few linux apps / malware using this method , does anyone know how current windows firewalls would fair against this method. Basicly using the libpcap liabry to both send and recive data right under the firewalls nose lol , also simular things i belive can be done with virtual network adaptors like those created by vmware. has anyone seen any windows malware using these methods? :cool:

    Their is a good description of this method on the link below

    This is year-old stuff.

    I would be more concerned with preventing something from "coming in 'over the top'" than worrying about it getting out.
