Hiding Mechanisms

Created the Saturday 23 March 2019. Updated 5 months, 3 weeks ago.

Malware often uses various techniques to hide its presence on a system and avoid detection. One common method is to modify or create entries in the system registry, which is a database of configuration settings for the operating system and installed applications. By modifying these settings, malware can hide itself from security software or other programs that might detect its presence.

Another technique is to modify or create critical system files, such as system DLLs or driver files. This can allow the malware to gain access to system resources and remain hidden from security software. Similarly, malware can hide itself in temporary folders or other locations on the system that are not routinely scanned for malicious activity. By using these and other techniques, malware can avoid detection and continue to operate on a compromised system.
