Vbootkit 2.0 has now been made open-source under GPL license.

Indian security researchers have released proof-of-concept code that can be used to take over a computer running Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 7 operating system, despite earlier promising not to make the code public for fear it could be misused.

VBootkit 2.0 was developed by researchers Vipin Kumar and Nitin Kumar and is now available for download under an open-source license.
Vbootkit 2.0 currently only works on Windows 7 ( x64 edition ).
