This is kind of cool!

The latest version of Process Explorer, one of the top tools in Microsoft’s popular Windows Sysinternals suite, has incorporated support for the popular VirusTotal service run by Google.

The Sysinternals tools were written by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell before Microsoft bought their company many years ago. Russinovich continues to develop the tools in his spare time at Microsoft while working on their Azure cloud service.

To quote the “What’s New” section on microsoft.com:

    Thanks to collaboration with the team at VirusTotal, this Process Explorer update introduces integration with VirusTotal.com, an online antivirus analysis service. When enabled, Process Explorer sends the hashes of images and files shown in the process and DLL views to VirusTotal and if they have been previously scanned, reports how many antivirus engines identified them as possibly malicious. Hyperlinked results take you to VirusTotal.com report pages and you can even submit files for scanning.

VirusTotal was created and built up by Hispasec Systems, a Spanish security consulting firm. Over the years it became wildly popular to the point where it needed a cloud infrastructure on the scale that a company like Google could provide. Google took the service over in 2012 [Corrected from 2007].

Ok, yet another little “old school” tip of the day! I was troubleshooting a setup and really needed to troubleshoot a process and what it was doing. And nowadays you don’t have to install the tools etc on the box! Yes, you can run it straight from the web if needed and most of the tools you need daily from a windows perspective are either installable easily on the box without a hazzle or you can run them from here;

Sysinternals Live

Sysinternals Live is a service that enables you to execute Sysinternals tools directly from the Web without hunting for and manually downloading them. Simply enter a tool’s Sysinternals Live path into Windows Explorer or a command prompt as http://live.sysinternals.com/<toolname&gt; or \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname>.

You can view the entire Sysinternals Live tools directory in a browser at http://live.sysinternals.com.
