Strange Rootkit Detections, Help Please
« on: January 07, 2015, 07:24:33 am »
Hello, I ran a scan with Roguekiller and I got 3 orange warnings for my Antirootkit (Kernel.Filter). Now I don't think they are that dangerous as the files are FPwinIo.sys (For two of them) and psd.sys for one of them. Checking these files online I figured out the FPwinIo.sys probably relates to my fingerprint scanner and psd.sys probably relates to my  Infineon Technologies Personal Secured Drive.

Anyway here is the rootkit detection:

Antirootkit : 3 (Driver: Loaded)
[Filter(Kernel.Filter)] \Driver\atapi @ \Device\Ide\IdeDeviceP3T0L0-3 : \Driver\Disk @ \Device\Harddisk1\DR1 (\SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\FPWinIo.sys)
[Filter(Kernel.Filter)] \Driver\atapi @ \Device\Ide\IdeDeviceP2T0L0-2 : \Driver\cdrom @ \Device\CdRom0 (\SystemRoot\System32\drivers\psd.sys)
[Filter(Kernel.Filter)] \Driver\atapi @ \Device\Ide\IdeDeviceP0T0L0-0 : \Driver\Disk @ \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 (\SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\FPWinIo.sys)

I ran the Norton, Microsoft and Kaspersky rootkit scanners as well as Malwarebytes and Spybot and came up with no errors or rootkits. I think these might need to be whitelisted in the future. What is your opinion?

Hello Firedark142,

Welcome to Forum.
These drivers are indeed legit. They will be whitelisted in the next release of RogueKiller.
