As reported on several news outlets and blogs... Windows 8 is giving startup malware the <a*hem*> "boot". Stories can be found on ARS Technica and Tech World. Quoting from Tech World, "Probably the biggest security addition is Windows 8’s support for UEFI 2.3.1 secured boot technology (which requires BIOS support), which stops early-booting malware from interfering with antivirus products before they load into memory."

An interesting document was sent to me recently that had a wealth of information, including this nice list of websites for malware analysis:
- Virus Total: Analyzes suspicious files against AV engines
- Sunbelt Sandbox Malware Sample site
- Threat Expert Malware Sample site
- Anubis: Analyzing Unknown Binaries
