What is a Rootkit?
Rootkit can be explained as combination of techniques and mechanisms used by malware software (viruses, trojans, spyware) which attempts to mask its presence in operation system from antivirus and other system management software.
How dangerous are rootkits?
Rootkit itself is usually only a tool used to hiddenly download and secretly install other malicious software. This malware can show fake warnings, use your computer as botnet client for DDoS attacks, steal your personal and financial data, send spam. The usage is only limited with malware authors imagination.
