Have you ever wondered if an application or running process is good or bad? Google searches do a good job of helping you determine if a process is legitimate or not. I just came across another resource in the fight against malicious software. It is a search engine for files, CLSID’s, and application names. The site is SystemLookup. The search results show whether the item is Malware, spyware, adware, or other potentially unwanted items, Legitimate items, Open to debate, or Currently unknown status. The various categories available for search include:
browser helper objects (BHO), toolbars, search hooks, explorer bars
Internet Explorer Buttons
Layered Service Providers
AppInit_DLLs & Winlogon Notify
Shared Task Scheduler
The website is community-based so please contribute and improve this resource for security information.
