Rootkits

I missed this when it was originally published, but it’s an interesting interview (if you can get around Joanna’s rather childish bias against the AV industry) about rootkit technology, and the escalating fight to secure operating systems. I totally agree on many points, including the idea of separating function as far as possible (having a separate VM only ever used for banking is a good idea). It’s a long article, and covers some basics too, but it’s worth persevering through the 9 pages.
