Kill Process

Created the Saturday 23 March 2019. Updated 1 month, 2 weeks ago.

Malware can use various techniques to evade detection and disrupt the efforts of security professionals to analyze it. One such technique is to kill processes that are related to anti-virus software or monitoring tools.

For example, malware may target processes such as wireshark.exe, ida.exe, or procmon.exe, which are commonly used by security professionals to monitor and analyze running processes on a system. By killing these processes, malware can prevent security professionals from gaining visibility into its activities and disrupt their efforts to analyze it.
