Forensic tool to find hidden processes and ports

Unhide is a forensic tool to find processes and TCP/UDP ports hidden by rootkits, Linux kernel modules or by other techniques. It includes two utilities: unhide and unhide-tcp.

unhide detects hidden processes using three techniques:

 * comparing the output of /proc and /bin/ps
 * comparing the information gathered from /bin/ps with the one gathered from
   system calls (syscall scanning)
 * full scan of the process ID space (PIDs bruteforcing)

unhide-tcp identifies TCP/UDP ports that are listening but are not listed in /bin/netstat through brute forcing of all TCP/UDP ports available.

This package can be used by rkhunter in its daily scans.
