Figure A-9

BlackLight checks the file system and running processes for anomalies, and then displays them and offers to “Clean” the system. This is a very basic rootkit detector that does not detect any of the rootkit technologies detailed in this book, but the convenience of a rootkit detector that can also clean your system with the press of a single button cannot be overlooked, once BlackLight can actually find rootkits.
