AVG gives away free anti rootkit
Posted by Dresonic on April 15, 2007
Good stuff from Antivirus software manufacturer AVG as today they introduced a free anti-rootkit piece of software. Rootkits burrow around and lurk in applications or the kernel of an operating system.
AVG Anti-Rootkit is a powerful tool with state-of-the-art technology for detection and removal of rootkits. Rootkits are used to hide the presence of a malicious object like trojans or keyloggers on your computer. If a threat uses rootkit technology to hide itself it is very hard to find the malware on your PC. AVG Anti-Rootkit gives you the power to find and delete the rootkit and to uncover the threat the rootkit is hiding.
They can do nasty nasty things like collect passwords from PCs without you knowing. AVG reckons they’re now more dangerous than the usual malware because AV software can’t always detect them. It’s completed a six month beta test and will make the software available for free on its web site, here.
