 Download Process Hacker

Process Hacker allows a malware analyst to see what processes are running on a device. This can be useful when detonating a piece of malware to see what new processes are created by the malware and where these are being run from on disk. Malware will often try to hide by copying itself to a new location and then renaming itself, Process Hacker will display this activity occurring making it easy to identify how the malware is attempting to hide.

This tool is also useful for pulling information from the memory of a process. This means that if a piece of malware is detonated then Process Hacker can be used to inspect the memory for strings, the strings found in memory will often return useful information such as IP addresses, domains, and user agents that are being used by the malware.
