On July 26, McAfee will begin offering a new
application called Rootkit Detective, designed to detect and remove
dangerous rootkit attacks. The software will also help end-users ward
off the threats, as well as funnel new intelligence into the company’s
ongoing research operations.

Following in the footsteps of SiteAdvisor — the free Web site security
program acquired by McAfee in April 2006 that warns users about
potentially dangerous sites and search results — company officials
said that the new tool will be offered at no charge from its Web site
via download, with benefits for both end-users and its researchers.
