Fedora Update Notification

Name        : unhide
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.0
Release     : 2.fc10.20080519
URL         : http://www.security-projects.com/?Unhide
Summary     : Tool to find hidden processes and TCP/UDP ports from rootkits
Description :
Unhide is a forensic tool to find processes and TCP/UDP ports hidden by
rootkits, Linux kernel modules or by other techniques. It includes two
utilities: unhide and unhide-tcp.

Unhide detects hidden processes using three techniques:

 - comparing the output of /proc and /bin/ps
 - comparing the information gathered from /bin/ps with the one gathered
   from system calls (syscall scanning)
 - full scan of the process ID space (PIDs bruteforcing)

unhide-tcp identifies TCP/UDP ports that are listening but are not listed
in /bin/netstat through brute forcing of all TCP/UDP ports available.
