CMD commands are often useful to discover if our PC is infected or not.

1.
Code:
tracert -d
to view if there are problems during the communication with an host.

2.
Code:
arp -a
this command is important to view if someone has used our router ARP table (so if someone hacked our network).

3.
Code:
dir C: attrib -s -h /s /d *.*
this will list all files (also which are hidden) and this will be useful to view suspicious files.

Thank you :);)

Hello. I am very good at IT. Whether computer viruses, I did not know that we could really know if there were viruses with the CMD! But ... How can the CMD find viruses ?? We need analyzes, etc.
Yes, of course the third command is useful because you can find easily files you don't recognize. And if you suspect an infection you can then analyze it with security software/online analyzers. The second command is also very good to discover hackers in our network.
