Roguekiller

#1 Post by TP109 » Sun Mar 03, 2013 4:53 am

RogueKiller Site

32 and 64 bit versions. Executable file.

Writeup on RogueKiller at TechRepublic here.

This app is popular on many security sites. I've used it a couple of times, but I'm not familiar with all of its capabilities. It writes its scan logs to the desktop and that's not configurable, so I don't know if that disqualifies it. Either way, nice to know about.

Description : RogueKiller is a program written in C++ and able to :

Kill malicious processes
Stop malicious services
Unload malicious DLLs from processes
Kill malicious hidden processes
Find and remove malicious autostart entries:
Hijack entries:
Read / Fix DNS Hijacks (DNS Fix button)
Read / Fix Proxy Hijacks (Proxy Fix button)
Read / Fix Hosts Hijacks (Hosts Fix button)
Restore shortcuts / files hidden by rogues of type "Fake HDD"
Read / Fix malicious Master Boot Record (MBR) -- Even hidden by rootkit
List / Fix SSDT - Shadow SSDT - IRP Hooks (Even with inline hooks)
Find and restore system files patched / faked by a rootkit

It's easier to download Roguekiller from here to bypass all the donation requests and confusing layout for locating the download links on the developer's site: http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details ... iller.html.

FYI, Adlice Software also provides RogueKillerCMD for free, a command line only version of their malware stomping utility: http://www.adlice.com/download/roguekillercmd/.

(3rd party review at betanews.com/2017/03/29/roguekillercmd-is-a-command-line-malware-hunter/).

Following the WannaCry debacle over the last weekend, one can not be too prepared... :o

Still in development at version 14.8.6.0

Softpedia is reporting it as freemium, but the site also adds a "for personal use only" caveat.

I'm actually in doubt this is still freeeware, as when I tried to run a quickscan with the latest CLI version, I got this output:

Adlice's pricing page actually states that portability requires the "Technician license" payment tier (cf. https://www.adlice.com/roguekiller/#pricing).

Edit: moved to "Payware".
