Uniblue brings interactivity to Process Library
Uniblue has launched Process Scanner, which searches for and identifies all the processes running on the user’s PC. The deep scan is free and brings interactivity to processlibrary.com, supplying a list of running processes, .dlls and other items running at present or in other instances. The list provides information on the task functions of each item, colour-coded information on the threat risk, and advises the user on the type of action to be taken. The user can also share the list with others as it is saved on the server, or they can click to create a log which generates a CSV file.
The process list is checked against all known processes, and an alert is raised when any unrecognized variants or processes not covered by the library are found. Uniblue’s proprietary RePLACE technology matches the PC’s data list with existing entries, constantly updating the library. Using the internal checking system, the Uniblue Lab’s team of specialists edits the existing data.
