...What's more, Intel's labs aren't just looking to protect computers against rootkits...company hopes it can also help stave off the more familiar threat of worms and viruses.

Intel is working on a combination of hardware and software to help protect computers...the chipmaker's Communications Technology Lab have devised a way to stifle sophisticated attacks by monitoring the operating system and critical applications run on a computer.

Right now the project, named System Integrity Services, is very much in development. Schluessler talked to CNET News.com about how the hardware-based approach works and how it could help keep pests off home PCs.
