    Good news indeed. I read almost nothing but BAD news in the Malware World.
    Does that mean that the bad guys are harder workers with more inventive ideas, than the good guys ?

    I and Jimmy from former Becky's Forum predicted the rise of Windows rootkits in 2001 or 2002 :D

    Hi Robert,

    I certainly remember me the Becky's Forum !!!
    Several of us were members in those good old days (and of other boards that sadly no longer exist).

    Robert,
    I don't know how Jimmy is doing; so sorry...
    If you have still contact with him, please give him my regards and all my best wishes!!!

    Warm regards, Jan.

    This is probably not going to be a full blown antiRootkit scanner, but as I understand certain versions of spyware are already using rootkit technology to evade detection, so MSAS needs to become more advanced. :)
