Has your computer been infected with a suspected NSA spying implant? A security researcher has come up with a free tool that can tell.
Luke Jennings of security firm Countercept wrote a script in response to last week’s high-profile leak of cyberweapons that some researchers believe are from the National Security Agency. It’s designed to detect an implant called Doublepulsar, which is delivered by many of the Windows-based exploits found in the leak and can be used to load other malware.
The script, which requires some programming skill to use, is available for download on GitHub.
