I tried to find the answer to this and spend hours reading books about rootkits and googling but no luck, the closest thing i found was a series of tweets which didn't help much
basically there is a bootkit that hooks something at the minifilter layer, and i heard that it is sometimes possible to use the ATA_PASS_THROUGH IOCTL from user-mode to bypass some of these hooks even at the minifilter layer, but where can i find a place that explains how exactly i have to use ATA_PASS_THROUGH from a usermode application to read sectors from disk? i want to read the MBR but the bootkit is returning a fake MBR, i want to try the user-mode approach before trying to write a kernel driver to bypass it.
so where can i learn more about how its possible to use ATA_PASS_THROUGH from user-mode to read sectors from disks or write to them? any open-source project or something?
