Bootkit Threat Evolution in 2011: by David Harley, on ESET Threat Blog: http://blog.eset.com/2012/01/03/bootkit-threat-evolution-in-2011-2

Quote:
'The year 2011 could be referred to as a year of growth in complex threats. Over the course of this year we witnessed an increase in the number of threats targeting the Microsoft Windows 64-bit platform, and bootkits in particular.'
After 'a self-explanatory diagram depicting the evolution of bootkit threats over time', 'go into more detail on specific malware types':

TDL4 bootkit
Olmasco bootkit
ZeroAccess rootkit
Rovnix bootkit

Then is described the Rootkit Hidden Storage:

Thank you, David Harley!
