I originally found this on Lazy Genius.

This is cool. Joanna Rutkowska has developed a new rootkit detection tool — System Virginity Verifier. Download link.

You can read about it at Rootkit.com. She also has a powerpoint presentation here.

The idea behind SVV is to check important Windows System components, which are usually altered by various stealth malware, in order to ensure system integrity and to discovery potential system compromise.”

She has other tools on her download page.

Note: This is a technical tool intended for an advanced user. If you’re just getting in to rootkits, I would start with the Sysinternals Rootkit Revealer.
