Safeboot keys

This one will be quick. I just read in Didier Stevens blog about the SafeBoot key. It seems that some malware removes the specific registry key (HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Safeboot)  in order to prevent the system booting in Safe Mode. Didier uploaded some pure SafeBoot reg files from default Windows installations. I have uploaded the files here,  SafeBoot.zip (remove the .ppt extension WordPress does not allow .zip file upload). Moreover Didier suggests to remove the “delete” permission from Administrators in order to prevent injected malware from deleting this key. I love this quick neat and clean tips I also love this sadistic malware defense mechanisms. 😉
