RootRepeal - Rootkit Detector Review

Fernando Ortega
Can remove even the most advanced rootkits. Scans very fast
A review of RootRepeal - Rootkit Detector by Fernando Ortega

RootRepeal is a new rootkit detector currently in public beta. It is designed with the following goals in mind:

Important Points:

  • Easy to use - a user with little to no computer experience should be able to use it.
  • Powerful - it should be able to detect all publicly available rootkits.
  • Stable - it should work on as many different system configurations as possible, and, in the event of an incompatibility, not crash the host computer.
  • Safe - it will not use any rootkit-like techniques (hooking, etc.) to protect itself.

Current Core Features:

  • Driver Scan - scans the system for kernel-mode drivers. Displays all drivers currently loaded, and shows if a driver has been hidden, and whether the driver's file is visible on-disk.
  • Files Scan - scans any fixed drive on the system for hidden, locked or falsified* files.
  • Processes Scan - scans the system for processes. Displays all processes currently running, and shows if a processes is hidden or locked.
  • SSDT Scan - shows whether any of the functions in the System Service Descriptor Table (SSDT) are hooked.
  • Stealth Objects Scan - attempts to determine if any rootkits are active by looking for typical symptoms.
  • Hidden Services Scan - scans for hidden system services.
  • Shadow SSDT Scan - counterpart to the SSDT Scan, but deals mostly with graphics and window-related functions.
