Easily check your system for suspicious activity with this simple program, though it is occasionally too stringent in identifying risks. Anti Hacker's very basic interface merely displays function buttons and a results list. File names found are color coded, but the colors disappeared at odd times during testing.
Anti Hacker's primary function is to check your system for keyloggers. It rates the potential logger, but the scale is pretty simplistic and only ranges from low to high risk. Unfortunately, sometimes the program incorrectly assigns a very high risk rating to known safe programs, such as screen printers and antivirus apps. The straightforward connection monitor quickly scans your system to identify if apps are connected to another Internet address. An open port checker is equally fast and also includes risk level indicators. This checker wasn't as sensitive as the keylogger checker. The final system checker scans for suspicious programs, assigning each with the familiar risk level.
Anti Hacker makes it easy to copy results lists to text files, quickly display file information, and search online for select file information. You're limited to a short three-day trial. This isn't the only spyware monitoring tool you should use, but it would be a fine basic app for any user.
Protect your computer against hackers with Anti Hacker, a powerful hacker and rootkit detector. With Anti Hacker's state-of-the-art threat detection algorithms, it can find dangerous threats hiding in your computer such as rootkits, key loggers, trojans, worms, and spyware. Prevent intruders from spying on your computer or Internet activity without your knowledge.
