We’ve just posted the following news: Researchers develop undetectable malware that hides in video card[newsimage]http://static.myce.com//images_posts/2015/05/AGP-Video-Card-95x75.jpg[/newsimage]

Researchers have developed malware for Linux and Windows that can hide in the video card and is therefore undetectable.

“The researchers state the malware is still in development and that it has only been created for educational purposes and that they are not responsible for actions of third parties.”

Seem to remember a guy named Oppenheimer thinking exactly the same thing!

I seem to recall a story on the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s website, in which a piece of malware overwrote part of the HDD’s firmware, so that even after the user cleans his/her system, the virus can simply re-install itself. It’s unknown where the malware came from, but the design was reminiscent of malware design methods the NSA is known to use.

When the system reboots the DLL is searched for in the GPU memory and when found executed without any HDD activity

So, this Windows DLL stays inside of the card’s RAM even after a reboot? Or does this also overwrite the device’s firmware?

It seems that the keylogger is inserted in ‘GTA V’ mods! So terrible! As far as I know, common keyloggers like Micro Keylogger for PC only can be installed physically on the target PC, or it is illegal.

Slowly, many of the things claimed to be present in “BADBIOS” seem to be cropping up individually.
