+ Summary

A hypervisor is a software layer that sits between the operating system and the processor. It presents a virtual running environment to the operating system. An example of a common hypervisor is Xen. Because a hypervisor operates at a level below the operating system it can hide its existence from the operating system.

+ Solutions and Mitigations

Prevent adversary access to privileged accounts necessary to install a hypervisor rootkit.
