Submit master boot record sample
Here are an instructions to send own MBR sample for analysis to Symantec. But only for Win9x OS.
- Boot viruses generally cannot affect Windows NT based Operating systems (Windows NT/2000/XP) because they do not allow direct access to the disk
All mechanisms are not perfect and can be skipped and for 10-years WinXP too. We knew threats that can infect MBR in WinXP. I infect my MBR record on the test computer while testing NIS 17.5 in the 7-8-March-2010. And then Norton many times blocks something like Neosploit Activity (2) there I "attacking" some sites on the internet. After some time it is bacame unbootable (it was running WinXP SP3 fully patched via Windows Update service) and I rewrite MBR of my test HDD with some ulitity and reallocate logical partitions again. So how MBR fingerprint can be done in WinXP, Vista, Win7? ---Due to huwyngr
