What is a pseudorootkit? [resolved]

First time I heard that word. Google doesn’t appear to cough up much on the matter. Nothing definitive anyway.


Hi Mike_P, The only thing I found with a quick search was from the Avast forums. It basically said that it uses a system driver to hide malware processes.

Here is also a link to a wiki on rootkits. Rootkit - Wikipedia

I wish I could help more, I’m a bit of a newbie. I hope this helps. :slight_smile:

Cheers, innerpeace

Rootkits hide and run at the kernel level. Pseudo rootkits run at the user level.

About time you showed up, what kept you? ;D

Ok, got it. Thanks for the replies. I assumed they were new types of rootkits.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.
