Oh come on Pierre.. you are talking to a reporter here... it is as
much of a rootkit as Metasploit is a virus.  Again... you are talking
to a reporter so it is about as usefull (especially in this case) as
talking to you morning dump before you flush.

Or merely a TSR hooking an interrupt vector. It doesn't hide itself.
It doesn't allow any kind of remote access to anything.

I can't see how it could even be remotely described as a rootkit.
