Malicious programs such as Trojan horses, keyloggers, and phishing programs can be very dangerous to your computer system once they are able to bypass your security firewall. There are numerous ways malicious programs can infect your system and one of them is through an executable file. Most of us don’t usually scan an executable file before running and they end up infecting our system without us knowing.
This software allows you to perform static security investigations on executable files without having to open them. It comes with support for file formats such as EXE, DLL, CPL, OCX, AX, SYS and others.
The application is portable and like other executable files, it does not need installation. You can choose to run it from your internal hard drive or an external USB storage. It also does not make any changes to your system or leave entries in the computer registry.
After inspecting the executable file, the application lists out information about the file indicators, DOS, file or optional header, data directories, imported and exported symbols, imported libraries, resources, strings, debug or version information, and more.
In addition, the application can tell you if the executable file contains viruses and how many.
The application enables you to check the integrity of executable files to prevent them from compromising your system security.
