Some more security tools
Going by This wonderful list of security tools.
But found that it does not list any tools to detect/eliminate rootkits from a system. Therefore I had to search for some more tools.
I have just read about some security tools while searching for the information on Rootkit removal techniques. Thought that it will be useful to discuss it with members also.
Here are some rootkit detection/removal tools
1. F-Secure Blacklight
2. Rootkit Revealer
3. The Cleaner (Another Related tool).
I have used Rootkit Revealer from sysinternals, it does detect some hidden key in the system registry and suspicious files. But it does not provide any way to fix the problems detected. User has to manually log into Safe Mode and fix the reported problems. F-Secure Blacklight is still in beta stage.. (unfortunalely) could not run it on Win2k3 machine, as it does not support this OS yet.
Also I have found some useful aritcles on this subject.
Here is one nice article
This list also seems to be useful
I am looking for some tools to check for possible rootkits installed on Win2k3 server machine in my office. The machine is being used as a web server. Any suggestions from members will be welcomed.
