Check your Mac
for hidden malware

What can rootkit do?

  A rootkit is a stealthy type of malicious software designed to lie hidden on computers and remain undetected by antivirus software. It enables continued administrative access to a computer, allowing access to your personal information. Rootkits are frequently used in combination with other malware to hide them from users and security products.


Why do I need this?

  The code for creating rootkit is nowadays available online. This increases the likelihood of finding rootkits for OS X in the wild. ESET Rootkit Detector provides a user friendly way to check the integrity of the kernel memory and give information to the user about potential problems.


What is the
ESET Rootkit Detector?

  ESET Rootkit Detector is a small app file. After download, it will scan your Mac running OS X for rootkits. It provides a single-click way to check your Mac for rootkits.


Why did we develop
ESET Rootkit Detector?


In the last year we have seen rootkit targeting OS X and keeping users safe while online is our mission. Therefore we decided to develop ESET Rootkit Detector and protect our users from rootkits like OSX/Crisis (OSX/Morecut) that was used to spy users and steal information from the Mac.
