    New McAfee Labs Top Threat Advisory - ZeroAccess

    SamSwift

      ZeroAccess is a family of Rootkits, capable of infecting the Windows Operating System. On infection, it replaces Windows System Files and installs Kernel Hooks in an attempt to remain stealthy. Once the hooks are installed, the target operating system falls under control of the rootkit, which is then able to hide processes, files, networks connections, as well as to kill any security tools trying to access its files or processes.
