Jesus Larry... think its responsible of you as a so called reporter of
the news to be reccomending a third party non-vendor patch that doesnt
even completely fix the issue?  Whitehat rootkit huh?  do you even
know what a whitehat is let alone a rootkit.

Stick to the NEWS and not your fiction.

Think of it as a "White Hat Rootkit"
