RKAnalyzer - kernel level rootkit analyzer !
The Hacker News

RKAnalyzer is a kernel level rootkit analyzer and defender using Hardware Virtualization Techniques, based on the BitVisor Project(A VMM developed by Tsukuba University and open-sourced under BSD License).

It tries to monitor kernel level rootkits' actions and log them. What differs RKAnalyzer with tranditional detection softwares(i.e. Rootkit Revealer, IceSword) is that RKAnalyzer actively intercepts rootkit actions, rather than reacting to rootkit after already infected. Also, RKAnalyzer support analysis mode, which differs from defend mode by presenting a much more transparent environment, in which rootkit would consider itself running without being monitored.
