Windows 7: McAfee introduces anti-rootkit security beyond the OS

McAfee introduces anti-rootkit security beyond the OS

Quote:
Cybercriminals know how to evade current operating systems-based security, demanding a new paradigm – security beyond the operating system.

On that note, McAfee demonstrated the workings of its new McAfee DeepSAFE technology at the Intel Developer Forum on Tuesday. Co-developed with Intel, it allows McAfee to develop hardware-assisted security products to take advantage of a “deeper” security footprint.



It sits beyond the operating system and close to the silicon, and by operating beyond the OS, it provides a direct view of system memory and processor activity, allowing McAfee products to gain an additional vantage point in the computing stack to better protect systems.

I see this potentially causing problems when it starts trying to wrestle hardware resources from the OS.

I didn't really see any mention of that problem, but I know it has to exist.
