Articles for Infosec Institute

There are just three of these: a series of articles on TDSS by myself, Aleksandr Matrosov and Eugene Rodionov, published in 2011, at the request of the InfoSec Institute.

TDSS part 1: The x64 Dollar Question
Considers and contrasts the distribution and installation of the TDL3 and TDL4 bootkits.

TDSS part 2: Ifs and Bots
Looks in more depth at the internals of the TDSS malware.

TDSS part 3: Bootkit on the other foot
The last part of the series describes the TDSS loading process.

Unfortunately, the formatting is poor in places and some of the links to graphics are broken. For a number of reasons, I’ve no wish to have further contact with the InfoSec Institute, so they’ll probably stay like that. 😦
