Overview

In this talk we'll rummage around inside the guts of Windows while on the lookout for malware, using a free tool named Process Hacker (similar to Process Explorer). Understanding processes, threads, drivers, handles, and other OS internals is important for analyzing malware, doing forensics, troubleshooting, and hardening the OS. If you have a laptop, get Process Hacker from SourceForge.net and together we'll take a peek under the GUI to learn about Windows internals and how to use Process Hacker for combating malware (http://processhacker.sourceforge.net).
