Stealth rootkit - next generation worm

Like a tricked-out Batmobile, Rustock.A also makes use of some classic stealth techniques to avoid detection: it can recognize when virus detection software is running and then alter its behavior to avoid that software; it hides its driver in an alternate data stream (ADS), then removes itself from the list of hidden drivers; it doesn't hook into any native APIs; and finally, it is polymorphic, so that its code is constantly changing.
