Just realized that when we have info re: say a new type of rootkit malware, should we post all the details of which we are aware (don't mean logs, I mean firsthand, generalized observations)?

Upside is obviously helping others in detection, downside is I'll wager the miscreants are also reading these posts and can use that info to modify and improve code. Not sure how you would like us to proceed when faced with such a situation. Pls let me know.

You can post information you have read and would like to start a discussion about, links to technical articles and white papers, encounters with rootkits you experienced, report a possible new rootkit, ask questions about rootkits, etc.

What you cannot post is recommendation or instructions to run advanced ARK tools for removal. We have a Malware Response Team (and qualified Mods, Admin) who handle that. Please read Rootkit Removal in AII.
