    Now that the Mebroot rootkit has been around for a few days, (named by symantec) does anyone have any idea which other AV's recognise it? I guess the problem is that so many of them give the virus different names, AVG did not recognise it under mebroot when I tried it, so does it use a different name for it?
    If anyone has any ideas's I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance, Rollers

    Most AVs recognize it, AVG should see it as: PSW.Sinowal.C

    eset: Win32/Agent.DSJ

    Does anyone know if HIPS or any other anti-keylogger can protect against the keylogging mechanism of StealthMBR?

    Is anyone able to post a screen of the client/control console of this beast?

    It would be a lot helpful if they decided on one name, instead of individual stupid random words.
