    Folks - a while back, Wilders Security stopped providing one-on-one system cleaning assistance, using such tools as HijackThis or similar.

    From now on, this really needs to include these new rootkit detector tool logs, as well.

    Here we can discuss the tools, or the emerging changes in malware and how it infects, but, for direct one-on-one log analysis and cleaning help, it's better to go to the tool author's own site or some other forum that provides such services.

    As EP_X0FF offers above, it'd be best to have your Rootkit Unhooker log reviewed on their site.

    Easter, EP_XOFF:

    Thanks again for the link! I will be patient and wait for responses.

    What happens I think is guys like me run program see Rootkit messages and due to all the Hype get upset.

    What you could do is say in a banner we aren't here 24/7 and 80-90% of "hits" are due to your own security software, that would help new entries.

    And a Hijackthis-like database for common entries? This way, you can keep your application "lean and mean" as a forensic tool and quickly drive its adoption by malware fighters around the world.

    Hello Lucas:

    I've never actually used Hijackthis but have seen their logs being supported and analized by the "gold" shield experts on TechGuy.

    Is this what you are suggesting?:)

    Like to ask what's coming up next when an even more updated RKUnhooker is released again sometime?

    I think it is of great value that RKU credits it's sources of some methods like SDTRestore and others the way they have and am greatly encouraged the way MP_ART and EP_X0FF have literally made history IMHO with their determination in developing such an ARK as this one.

    I dunno about anyone else but a program on this order DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE! TrapZero!

    Unreal demo also goes straight-to-the-heart of limitations suffered by other ARK's and kind of leaves you breathless how so very quietly it embeds itself. I'm sure the examination of XP r0 sub-levels is far from complete for the sharpest of coders who still can find room for measuring success. :cool:

    Re the profanity/abuse message at the top of Rootkit Unhookers main page on http://rku.xell.ru :

    Has the site been hacked by (very young) script kiddies, or is this a marketing ploy designed to show the professionalism and dedication of rootkit unhookers manufacturers?

    Thanks,
    Londonbeat

    Hi Londonbeat,

    Oh, I see what are you mention. So you have given yourself all answers on all your questions. In first, you are not a judge who can judge our level of professionalism / dedication, I'm sorry. In second, probably it is good to speak in manner as mister Gmer did (cf https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=932205&postcount=24 aka "soviet style") and it is bad to answer on such actions :) Yes, I understand you pretty well :) As well as your sympathy to mister Gmer and his product, that you shows everywhere, are understandable :)

    Kind Regards.

    EP_X0FF,

    With respect to dedication and skill for that matter, there really shouldn't be a lot of questions.

    However, professionalism is something that each of us can readily assess and judge within the context of our own set of criteria. Different people will weight various traits differently. My personal opinion is that the path you've chosen to follow shows a lack of professionalism.

    Regards,

    Blue

    Kind Regards.

    I was discussing you in particular. I believe that each of you could step back and, in a quiet moment, ask yourselves how you wish to be viewed by the greater community. Neither of you are blameless for the current situation, each of you feed it.

    A part of professionalism is to stop feeding off these types of circumstances when they do occur and simply move on. If the other side remains stuck in the past, ultimately they start to look a tad ridiculous.

    Regards,

    Blue

    Usually i don't join such discussions, but don't you think that "**** GMER FREE" banner is somehow over the lines? Even with the fact that both programs are freeware i would consider myself to stop supporting authors with such silly behavior. (Assuming i would be a user of course...) Because it's simply rude. You do have a problem with gmer? That's basically "fine" and at least i don't mind. But please do us all a favor and do your witch-hunting "technologies" in private and not on the back of security products and/or websites.

    I think Rootkit Unhooker is an excellent ARK, but with posting of threads such as this: http://forum.sysinternals.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=9959&PN=1&TPN=1 and offensive (and childish) banners on your site, you are acting unprofessionally.

    As noted above by others, if you and gmer have a 'problem' then you would gain more respect from the security community if you kept these issues private, you are doing exactly the opposite.

    Do you expect customers to trust and want to use Rootkit unhooker when you are openly launching a hate campaign against another security vendor?

    :) So many posts, all the same. All come here to defend Gmer :) by pointing to "problems".

    You have added new banner to our site. Looks like you posted what you thinked, not what you see. Well I do not await something else from you. Nothing to add here, since I have never trust any kind of AV-experts and their products.

    Yes, basically you should told that to both side, not only always to me.

    Gmer, since this day, I do not want to talk with you, no matter publicly or via PM's.

    If you think that there is some important thing to me to be here or in any other public place you all are mistaken. I'm come here only because here was discussed my/our program(s) and some of rootkits. Nothing more here is not interested to me. If you have moral / ethical / any other kind of problems, do whatever you wish, but remember, that this is our site, and we can do on it, whatever we want. What we do - is simple answering on offensive attacks from other so-called "antimalware" guys. Rude methods? Maybe, but they equal to attackers methods.

    BTW guys you started huge offtopic, I don't remember that this thread was called "rkunhooker and ethic problems".

    It's nothing personal. But to be honest, it is you who is putting up banners on your website and starting bashing/accusational threads. I have never seen gmer do this. You make it so that people cannot help but notice the continual bashes you direct towards gmer, using various methods - the latest being an offensive text banner on rootkit unhooker site.

    Unfortunately, since you don't seem to understand that it's all about credibility and trust in this business, I regret having to inform you that I am going to uninstall your otherwise excellent software from my computer.

    You don't know the root of our war with Gmer. It was started by mister Gmer long time ago (in the beginning of june 2006) on Sysinternals forums, so to be honesty I think you simple defending Gmer like application and person, nothing more. If mister Gmer still denies to remember his statements and other interesting words it is his problems.

    We do not get money for this so, it is not a business. Do whatever you wish, I completely don't care.

    This is your option, Pinga. RkU is freeware and uninstalling has no meaning for us. One user uninstall it - ten install it

    I'm not gonna say what should be or not on RkU, but if I was EP_X0FF I'd have a couple of reasons to be p****d off with gmer.

    EP_X0FF, I have some RkU program messages, do I have to join RkU forum or can I mail support?
