Discover hidden processes and listening ports

If you ever suspect your system has been hacked, one of the first tools I check against is unhide. It will let you know if any processes (or ports) are hidden from the system.

unhide proc
unhide sys
unhide brute

also bundled with the application is unhide-tcp to find hidden applications using tcp or udp ports:


NOTE: There is also a Windows version, but i’ve not used it myself so your milage may vary.
