'Blue Pill' Prototype Creates 100% Undetectable Malware
By Ryan Naraine
June 28, 2006

A security researcher with expertise in rootkits has built a working prototype of new technology that is capable of creating malware that remains "100 percent undetectable," even on Windows Vista x64 systems.

Joanna Rutkowska, a stealth malware researcher at Singapore-based IT security firm COSEINC, says the new Blue Pill concept uses AMD's SVM/Pacifica virtualization technology to create an ultra-thin hypervisor that takes complete control of the underlying operating system.

Very very scary stuff, just how long will it be before the WORLD governments finally pull there fingers out and realise how big computer crime is. Computer crime should have the same sentence as bank roberry, at the end of the day, its a quick way to mug somebody, or even company and until the government gets serious,sadly this will continue even further.

I totally agree.
its evil computers are evil or atleast the persons behind it, and imo its the same kind of evil that lays in bank robbers, murders and such.

The Blue Pill Hype


Yep, She explains it well in the first paragraph .

All the hype started from this article in eWeek by Ryan Naraine... The article is mostly accurate, despite one detail - the tile, which is a little misleading... It suggests that I already implemented "a prototype of Blue Pill which creates 100% undetectable malware", which is not true. Should this be true, I would not call my implementation "a prototype", which suggests some early stage of product.

functional but unfinshed
