    I wouldn't expect you are infected with a rootkit.. and what the rootkit does, it tries to fool that host OS into believing its talking directly to the hardware, where as its actually talking to the rootkit, which is acting as 'proxy'.

    The rootkit then has the ability to 'abuse' whatever data it feels nec coming from the kernel..
