Editors' Review

This tool for experienced users will identify rootkits installed to hook the kernel system services. If that sounds like gibberish, this tool, though easy to use, isn't designed for you. With two tabs and three buttons, RootKit Hook Analyzer takes no time to learn. A short Help file attempts to explain what this application is designed to find, but it will be of little use to users not already familiar with the concepts.

Operating RootKit Hook Analyzer is a snap. Merely open the application and press the analyze button. In seconds, the plain text results window displays a list of all services. Those hooked to the kernel are displayed in red, but there's also an option with a quick click of a check box click to show only hooked services. The application includes a tool to stress test any found hooks. The tool simply checks if the hook performs proper parameter checking. Run the test and get a system crash and you're running poorly written software. It's up to the user to figure out how to resolve the results.

This application can't identify the product origin of all hooks. To help users see what is running on their system, a second tab lists all loaded modules. An export button will save the lists to a text file. Some testers reported the log file would occasionally fail.

Expert users will find RootKit Hook Analyzer a useful freeware tool for finding kernel hooks.
