Forensic tool to find hidden processes and ports
Unhide is a forensic tool to find processes and TCP/UDP ports hidden by
rootkits, Linux kernel modules or by other techniques. It includes two
utilities: unhide and unhide-tcp.
.
unhide detects hidden processes using three techniques:
- comparing the output of /proc and /bin/ps
- comparing the information gathered from /bin/ps with the one gathered
from system calls (syscall scanning)
- full scan of the process ID space (PIDs bruteforcing)
.
unhide-tcp identifies TCP/UDP ports that are listening but are not listed in
/bin/netstat through brute forcing of all TCP/UDP ports available.
.
This package can be used by rkhunter in its daily scans.
