I was reading and yes, this could be the beginning of a new loader, the more definitive solution I was talking about.
The comments at the neowin article are a hoot. As they said, this is not Windows 8 specific, it is not UEFI specific, it does not work against SecureBoot, and it does not work unless you grant admin access to the program they made. It's like leaving your doors unlocked, leaving your safe with your valuables set to the combination 1-2-3-4-5, then complaining when you get robbed.
Most of Windows 7 kits get around UAC by simply getting the user to click "Yes" on the prompt, which most people happily do, because usually those viruses come bundled with something you trust and want and are already installing, like a pack of smilies, a new MSN messenger addon pack, or something else you'd rather download from a third-party site rather than the developers site for any reason.
just use mbr guard and that will stop any boot kit
A pack of smilies
Honestly, I don't get people's obsession with fancy animated smilies that make noises when you hover over them. They're not really essential to communication. A simple smiley will suffice. An all those "cartoonify yourself" gimmicks and "this is not a joke, you've just won $10000000000". If you're silly enough to fall for them tricks in this age, then you deserve every virus that will infest your PC.
