Security is getting to be a real nightmare.



A team of anonymous developers who recently created a Linux rootkit that runs on graphics cards has released a new proof-of-concept malware program that does the same on Windows. A Mac OS X implementation is also in the works.

Pretty much sucks big time. I used to do everything I could to practice PCM, but things just go deeper and deeper making it so difficult to find the roit of the problem and extract it.

I suppose that at some point things will get so bad that the industry/gov't will take notice and do something about it. Right now it's highly lucrative for the bad guys.

Not exactly since the GPU can execute arbitary code... Now restricting the malware with regards to not restricting the GPU's powers; that's going to be hard.

angrydevil While I do appreciate the push to see what's possible, I really wish they would leave some things alone

in many ways thats fantastic, its good to know that we can now start working on a defense sytem, however i also have no doubt that if you can see a proof of concept someone already has a malware form doing SOMETHING, or at least one in the works. now i prefer to think of ways this can be used for good, like pseudo malware, say you voluntarily download a virus that runs specific calculations to help a larger body do multi-computer computing for something. its pretty cool to me and id like to see what comes of it, or ya know..if we find some governmental virus was there all along.
