RootKitty - Rootkit Finder A little program that I made
Posted 30 March 2009 - 07:15 PM
Any file that attempts to stealth itself is considered a rootkit. RootKitty doesn't care what type of file it is, if you scan from within windows and it doesn't show up then scan from UBCD4Win and it does then I would take a closer look at the file.

However, aside from doing the within and without compare, is there any other way to 'observe' or block the 'phone home' functions of a keystroke logger?
I think my PC has been infected with one of these nasty malware programs.
I hate to have to try to preserve all my important files, wipe the HDD and restore the 3 recovery disks that came with it.
Thanks again for your thoughts.

For the tools currently included in UBCD4Win, I would say run Avira, SuperAntiSpyware, AdAware, SpyBot, and EzPCFix (if you know how to use it).

Can we smoke in here?
Cigarettes or crack?
Don't make me choose.

Since a keylogger could be detected by either an antispyware or an antivirus... any or all of them is what you want to use since you won't know which can detect whatever you may ( or may not have )... but until you actually start doing something you won't know... in short its time to quit talking about it and actually start doing some of the suggestions you were given.

As I said, minor, but perhaps worthy of a tweak in future versions.
Thanks for your great work!
