Testimonials

Just want to say that apparently your Exterminate It has worked like a charm. I was infected with a most troublesome Malware Trojan that kept replicating every time McAfee found, blocked and removed it... most annoying for several days... until Mr. Google led me to your door. What a God send!

With thanks,

Rootkit

A rootkit is a set of programs used by a hacker to conceal unauthorized access to a computer. To bypass antivirus scans, a rootkit replaces Windows system files or libraries, or installs special software modules. The hacker installs the rootkit after obtaining user-level access, typically by cracking a user’s password or exploiting a vulnerability of the operating system. The rootkit proceeds to gather other user IDs stored on the computer until the hacker gains administrator access to the system.
Hackers commonly use rootkits as a technique for concealing trojan activity.
