New rootkit hides in hard drive's boot record

The most interesting thing about this rootkit is that it attacked systems unpatched for about 2 years. That's how long ago Microsoft patched the flaw being used as the attack vector. If you are up to date on patching, this really isn't a problem for you.

Once again; the moral is patch, patch and patch.
