I'm Craig Schiller, a CISSP-ISSMP, ISSAP with 26 years of IT experience, most of it in information security. I came to the site looking for antihookexec.exe, a utility that was recommended in the book Winternals from Syngress. I wrote the chapter on network troubleshooting in the book but I was reading the other chapters and found the reference to bleeping computers.

I found it odd that I could only get to the file by going directly to the file in my browser. I couldn't find a link or menu item that would take me there. Do you have other useful utilities available?

Hi Craig. I was one of the other authors (Lawrence Abrams) of Winternals as well :thumbsup: I wrote Chapter 4 on Computer Monitoring.

The correct place to get antihookexec is really :


The above link contains the C++ source to this file as well. I mirrored it here as there were some scripts (not sure if they ever made it out of production) that were using it as part of their method to remove various rootkits. Thats why there is no extra info on it here at BC.

As for other useful tools, nothing else really comes to mind other than the various homegrown tools that the anti-malware people who frequent this site create.

Welcome to the site btw :flowers:
