Alien Component

In any domain of activity where patterns exist we can find anti-patterns too. They are bad solutions for recurrent problems in specific contexts. One of them I would like to introduce briefly is called Alien Component. In essence, when every technique fails or we run out of WinDbg commands we look at some innocent component we have never seen before or don't have symbols for: be it some driver or hook. Of course, this component cannot be the component developed by the company we are working for.
