About the Authors

Alex Matrosov is a leading offensive security researcher at NVIDIA. He has more than two decades of experience with reverse engineering, advanced malware analysis, firmware security, and exploitation
techniques. Before joining NVIDIA, Alex served as Principal Security Researcher at Intel Security Center of Excellence (SeCoE), spent more than six years in the Intel Advanced Threat Research team, and was
Senior Security Researcher at ESET. Alex has authored and co-authored numerous research papers and is a frequent speaker at security conferences, including REcon, ZeroNights, Black Hat, DEFCON, and others. Alex received an award from Hex-Rays for his open source plug-in HexRaysCodeXplorer, supported since 2013 by the team at REhint.

Eugene Rodionov, PhD, is a Security Researcher at Intel working in BIOS security for Client Platforms. Before that, Rodionov ran internal research projects and performed in-depth analysis of complex threats at ESET. His fields of interest include firmware security, kernel-mode programming, anti-rootkit technologies, and reverse engineering. Rodionov has spoken at security conferences, such as Black Hat, REcon, ZeroNights, and CARO, and has co-authored numerous research papers.

Sergey Bratus is a Research Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College. He has previously worked at BBN Technologies on Natural Language Processing research. Bratus is interested in all aspects of Unix security, in particular Linux kernel security, and detection and reverse engineering of Linux malware.

Modern malware is always evolving because malware authors are constantly finding new ways to bypass security and avoid detection. Defending against (and even discovering) the latest malicious software requires cunning and extensive expertise because attackers have become much more sophisticated.

One particularly fascinating and threatening area of malware development is that of rootkits and bootkits. We’re talking hard stuff – attacks buried deep in a machine’s boot process or firmware. These are the kind of attacks that keep malware analysts up late at night. But help is on the way.

In Rootkits and Bootkits, authors Alex Matrosov, Eugene Rodionov, and Sergey Bratus share the knowledge and expertise they’ve gained during years of professional research. You’ll learn how to expose hidden files systems that can make rootkits so hard to identify and remove. You’ll explore how malware has evolved from rootkits like TDL3 to the present; how this stealthy software can take hold of a system; and how to counter anti-debugging, anti-disassembly, and anti-virtual machine measures. You’ll also learn how bootkits work, and how Windows boots so that you can better prevent infections in the first place.

Cybercrime syndicates and malicious actors keep pushing the envelope, writing ever more persistent and covert attacks. But the game is not lost. In this low-level tour through the wilds of malware, you’ll learn how to reverse next generation threats. Explore the cutting edge of malware analysis with Rootkits and Bootkits.
