ComboFix? Rootkit solution?
Posted on 2009-07-09
Lots of people have been offering ComboFix as an antivirus solution, I see no problem with that as its features are rather useful for such a thing. After all, it seems to be an automated version of your typical guide on the steps on how to remove an antivirus. But recently I came across a person who offered this program as a solution for a rootkit. Now I don't have much knowledge with this particular program's internals, but from their website information on how it works, features, and etc. I see absolutely no benefit from using this as a rootkit finder/killer. Does anyone have any insight into this program as a rootkit solution? This is, by all means, a discussion. I will award points to the people who can provide the most informative information. I tried to put this in an "ask the experts" section, but they told me to place it here.
