The author of the Hacker Defender rootkit has announced that he will stop offering the so-called antidetection service, which promised to hide the rootkit from anti-virus products and even from rootkit detectors such as F-Secure BlackLight.

It's a very strange article and it's sort of written as if ew've meant to feel sorry for the malware-writer!

in an e-mail exchange with eWEEK, "Holy Father" said he isn't throwing in the towel, and that he may return to rootkit development after taking a break from Hacker Defender to work on other projects.
