Virtual realms and rootkits

It was only a matter of time before rootkits and other assorted malware became cognizant of running in VMware type environments. There has been a lot of research lately concerning this by various researchers. For those of you who see running a VMware image as a failsafe be aware, it isn’t. That said, it is a huge step forward in terms of security though one that is not widely deployed by corporate networks. Equally fun thought is performing reverse engineering on malware that has code built into it to detect its running in VMware. Any of guys looked at any such malware?
