LXer: Designing BSD Rootkits: An Introduction to Kernel Hacking

Published at LXer:

A lot of why I requested this book for review was sheer curiosity. Like many people, I'm used to thinking "Rootkit = bad". Why the heck would any author or publisher want to take on the liability of teaching their readers how to behave unethically and criminally? The little voodoo doll on the cover did nothing to allay my concerns. However, once I had the book in my hands and began to work through it, I saw it with different eyes.

I found that Lawsuit. Actually it is supported by the RIAA. It was brought by BMG. They are the ones who wrote the Sony Rootkit.
