    Default 'Unfixable' Windows 7 Exploit

    On one of my researches, I've found this:

    'Unfixable' Windows 7 exploit created by security experts

    I thought it would be nice to share it. It's a bit old, though...

    Unfixable? I find this to be a very bold statement. Just as a pointer, this exploit cannot be run remotely and is quoted "the attacker has to have physical access to the target machine". Interesting nonetheless.

    Yes, I agree. But from what I've seen it isn't yet fixed and it was discovered around April this year. So it could be truth.

    Another pointer, this exploit will only work with Windows 7 x64 version, so x86 w7 systems remain secure to this exploit (for now...).

    Vbootkit 2.0 currently only works on Windows 7 ( x64 edition ).
    More info at NVlabs.

    What I find interesting is the replies to the article. People laugh because physical access is required. In my mind that isnt something to laugh at. Its not difficult to get physical access to many computers.
