Microsoft plans to integrate rootkit detection technology from its Strider Ghostbuster research project into future versions of the Windows AntiSpyware application, Ziff Davis Internet News has learned. Strider Ghostbuster, a prototype tool developed by Microsoft Corp.'s Cybersecurity and Systems Management Research Group, provides a straightforward way to detect Windows rootkits by comparing scan results between a clean system and one that may potentially be compromised.By Ryan Naraine July 18, 2005 at eWeek.com Details of Microsoft's plans remain scarce, but sources say the company has grown increasingly worried about the threat from stealth rootkits. The integration is unlikely to happen in time for the next Windows AntiSpyware beta refresh.
