Privacy, Security, Encryption McAfee demonstrated the workings of its new McAfee DeepSAFE technology at the Intel Developer Forum on Tuesday. It sits beyond the operating system and close to the silicon, and by operating beyond the OS, it provides a direct view of system memory and processor activity. Among the threats that it detects are Stuxnet, SpyEye, the TDSS roorkit family and the NTRootkit.

If it's McAffee, then it's Intel. Yes, it's going to be implemented, and it's going to be implemented soon and it's going to be forced into Intel platforms.

Intel acquired McAffee in February this year.

Can't wait for my bios (or EFI) to be replaced by a crapware UI from McAfee with a really nice graphical theme, but 0 useful functionnalities and some random hangs at startup.

I spent more time fixing antivirus problems (antivirus slowing everything on friend's computer) than rootkit and crapware themselves.
