Shadow Security Scanner

Post by Bogdan-Mihai » Mon Sep 05, 2016 7:38 am

Hi,

I recently came across this Shadow Security Scanner by Safety-Lab. It looks very nice, it does what it is supposed to do, but I suspect it could be malicious. It creates some temporary files, spawns some processes upon installation. Did someone else tried it? Any thoughts?

Have a nice day,
Bogdan

Never heard about it. Something similar to Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer?
Ring0 - the source of inspiration

Basically, yes. This one looks complete and it seems like it can audit proxies, too. MBSA looks like it works only against Windows.

Maybe someone used the free 15 day version or can have a look at it.

I shall take a look and run it in Cuckoo see if anything interesting pops up. I'll report back if there is anything interesting.

Good point. I have a Cuckoo with 3 diff VMs, I can run it in there, too. I`ll wait for your thoughts.
