Default MalwareTech SBK - A Bootkit Capable of Surviving Reformat


Unfortunately I can't post a proof of concept for many reasons (people have even contacted me just to tell me not to post it), so instead I've written a presentation overviewing and explaining the rootkit, which I've dubbed MT-SBK.
The only way to remove MT-SBK is by replacing that hard disk's PCB or connecting an SPI programmer directly to the flash chip and flashing it with the original firmware.
