NAME

unhide --- forensic tool to find hidden processes  

SYNOPSIS

unhide-linux26 proc | sys | brute

unhide-posix proc | sys  

DESCRIPTION

unhide is a forensic tool to find processes hidden by rootkits, Linux kernel modules or by other techniques. It detects hidden processes using three techniques:

The proc technique consists of comparing /proc with the output of /bin/ps.

The sys technique consists of comparing information gathered from /bin/ps with information gathered from system calls.

The brute technique consists of bruteforcing the all process IDs. This technique is only available on Linux 2.6 kernels.
