Summary


We now have a rootkit that does the following:

  • Hides its device driver entry

  • Hides its configuration file

  • Hooks the operating system kernel

Kernel hooking can provide most of the functionality required by rootkits, but there are other techniques that will also assist in the implementation of a fully functional rootkit. The next chapter adds another crucial rootkit component: process injection.
