New Behavioral Analysis Rootkit Detection Tool

Posted by Xavier Ashe on July 18, 2006

Helios is an advanced malware detection system.
It has been designed to detect, remove and inoculate against modern
Windows rootkits. It performs behavioral analysis as opposed to
signature based analysis and is able to detect rootkits in real-time as
well as unhide hidden processes and restore hijacked system functions.

A public technology preview can be downloaded from here.
Also provided are videos of Helios in action and a whitepaper on the technology.
