Hello all, and welcome to KernelMode.info.

This forum was created to provide a place for people to discuss rootkits, debugging, reverse-engineering, malware analysis, and other related topics, without having to worry about trolls and useless content.

  1. NO ILLEGAL CONTENT. This means: no posting warez, cracked software, or talking about how to write viruses and trojans. We do not create malware here.
  3. Malware samples and links to malware are permitted, but you must obfuscate a link (ie. hxxp://, NOT http://) and clearly show that a link is malware. This is to ensure people don't accidentally infect themselves.
  4. Stay on topic. If you have another question, or want to talk about something unrelated, make a new topic or post in the General Discussion forum.
  5. Please post in English. If you are unable to speak English, please use Google Translate (http://translate.google.com). Thank you.
  6. Inappropriate usernames are not allowed. If you have an inappropriate username, you will be warned and given the option to change it. If no response is received, then your username will be changed for you.
  7. Please don't use inappropriate language on the forums.
  • Avatars are enabled, but you will need to upload your own.
  • If you have an inappropriate avatar, you will be warned or banned, depending on the severity of the image.
  • The maximum dimensions for an avatar are 90 x 90 pixels.
  • The maximum file size for an avatar is 10KB.
  • You cannot download attachments unless you are registered.
  • You must provide a valid email address for registration. A confirmation link will be sent to this email. Don't use a temporary mail service to register, this lead only to insecurity.
  • Some of the downloads and links on this forum may point to malware - be absolutely sure whatever you are downloading or wherever you visit is legit! If in doubt, don't go, and ask first!
Thank you for joining, and we hope that you enjoy your stay. Please read, understand, and follow the rules.

Hello all,

You may have noticed that some of our members have a bolded blue name, as opposed to the standard one. This is because they are part of the "Confirmed Members" group. This group is made up of people who have been verified as knowledgeable and/or content-providing posters. If you would like to join the group, here is how:

How To Join
  1. Not be a spambot or troll, and not have more than 1 warning against you.
  2. Have posted a significant amount of new content or malware samples
What does being a confirmed member get you?
You get the ability to make polls, and access to another, hidden forum that is only for knowledgeable, sensible users.

The administration reserves the right to upgrade anyone to a "Confirmed Member" based on other published content (ie. if you have lots of good content at another site, you may be upgraded here without needing to post anything).

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.
