Nice tool, I really like the Realtime File Monitor logs.
Kind of reminds me of ProcessGuard by Diamond CS which was discontinued.

Enjoy!! :D

Due to a Unexpected problem this release is being put on hold for further investigation.
In the final test it has been shown that this module did have unintended side effects, some commands where not correctly executed.
While the module does work and the end result is exactly as written, i have taken the decision to halt the release as i want the code to be smooth and clean.

Greeting!:)

Let us know when there are versions for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 X64 Bits Operating System!
Looking forward to the Home Versions!:cool:

Best regards

"However i am willing to make a windows 8 version for home users but thats going to take time as i really have to change ALOT because user friendlyness is going to be a big issue. Next to that Windows 8 has lost MUCH functionality in this field so its also going to require extensive research.":cool:

Next to that Windows 8 has lost MUCH functionality in this field so its also going to require extensive research.":cool:
Yes a windows 8 version might be at the horizon, yet the program itself is aimed at the industry and it functions are also written with the industry in mind, Windows 8 is NOT being used within the industry as Windows 8 is a massive, epic costly fail and from what i have noticed within the industry is that companies would LOVE to hold on to XP or Windows 7 in this case as there is nothing but problems windows 8 can offer them.
Also the alleged surveillance and other big brother type of functions within Windows 8 will stop companies using it.
Hence why its rumored that windows 9 is being made which is to some a upgraded windows 8 but then with the functionality windows xp and 7 did have so that MS can tackle the HUGE loss they are taking with Windows 8.
And while i want to satisfy my own costumers i really do not see my program be a + to windows 8, specially because windows 8 is basically a brain death OS.
In terms of options and such Windows 7 is far more capable. As i said it remain to be seen what i will do.
Another issue is that While windows 8 is suppose to be so much more advanced then windows 7 it is very weak in terms of real security.
Sure from a home perspective it has way more to offer then Windows 7, but for a company Windows 8 is just a liability.

I could give you the example of last week, last week at clients company we installed 10 client PC's with Windows 8 and we did have a MS server taking care of them, in Admin mode.
Well boy o boy it was bad...
Usually the company network blocks around 10/100 targeted malware attacks and on average over 20000 rule based attacks every so odd couple of hours. As the company has a massive world wide network and is on a triple A hitlist by cyber criminals (If a cyber criminal is going to hack a company for technological and personal gain then our client is certainly on the list to be attacked.
According to the Security within the OS itself everything was suppose to be squeaky clean, but after close up investigation it turns out Windows 8 was being ripped to pieces from the inside out.
I tell you what i have not yet come across a OS that is so well rounded for home use (granted!) yet on the same time i did not come across a OS yet that has such a weak internal security as windows 8 from a industrial perspective.
Also the amount of traffic generated by Windows 8 is 6 times as much then all other previous versions, and if you block that traffic or try to turn it off then Windows 8 crashes.
So where is this traffic going? Make a educated guess!!!!
Needless to say the company demanded that we stop the test and remove Windows 8 from the test computers.
I quote: "I do not want Windows 8 CD within 100 meters from any PC because its so malicious that it even would manage to infect the system with MS fail while not even being installed."
And to me personally this comes from the CEO of one of our massive clients, they have 15 times more computers and servers worldwide running then MS itself. (Not going to say names) period)
Me and my team have proven that Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1 have both more standoff and far better security (when hardened and tweaked) then windows 8 as it is a 100% fail at that point there is absolutly nothing windows 8 has to offer for any company with more then 1 computer!!!!. And totally hyped in many ways. But then again if you talk to sources within the MS company then this is painfully clear, as there are more possible bugs within windows 8 and more unforeseen problems then on, XP, VISTA and Windows 7 combined.
So go figure.

In regards to the hotfix i am making , it is ready, i just did not find the time yet to compile it into the new version.
I might do that today.... So stay tuned for a update.

Well, what can I say? If knowledge really is power, this program can make you a god. :)
@Mateotis
@Umbra Polaris
Well i am not sure if the program can make me god, in fact i hope not as he is the last person i would like to be.
Its hard enough to be myself lol.
That said the program can and will list whatever data there is to gather.
Sure its most of it is in simple TXT format, but this is for a reason as there are 2 other components that are delivered as standalone tools which can make sense out of the TXT files. But they are not going to be released in public.
The log files contain mostly raw data which will dazzle you, but with the right tools and additional third part tools the program really becomes magic.
It has never been designed to operate alone and neither has it been designed to replace other programs.
From a forensic perspective there is no such thing as to many tools, there is no such thing as can do it all, and there is no such thing as to much data.
The problem is that nowadays malware and intrusions have become pretty much military grade in many ways.
Even simple rootkit and bootkits have techniques build in that a few years ago where only available to MIT and Harvard type specialists.
These days even my little son could create a high quality malware that will cause havoc.
I mean look around on some of these malware sites they pretty much allow you with a bit of reading to make malware that will haunt the Windows user for the next 3 to 4 years before a cure can be found.
Same goes for industrial cyber espionage, hacking, corruption and malware... the level of technological skill involved to create high end hacking software has gone up considerably while the effort to obtain this skill and tools to create these tools have gone down.
To give you a example its 100 times more easy to get yourself a seriously good hacking AIO package then to get a gun.
Where 10 years ago the average malware was just a piece of code what essentially changed the way windows functions worked, they now do the same but in so much detail and technological skill that one can only admire those who come up with this crap.
And yet if anyone want to get into the hacking industry, you do not need a extensive knowhow. The only thing you need is a PC + Internet connection and a bit of time to gather the right tools. read some tuto's and download some samples and everything suddenly becomes almost just as easy as installing windows.
So from a forensic perspective older tools are still house hold tools that every forensic investigator would use, however there is a serious need for specialized tools that generate data. Simple said there are only 3 tools on the planet that generate data to the level of court grade logs. My program is as i mentioned very simple yet its logging and data collection while being a centralized program is unmatched and in many ways the next generation.
I am not saying this to make my program look good, as it does not to be honest... but its logging and data collection really does do the trick. The program 1 part out of a set of 3 (the last 2 components are never going to be released as i said and they are custom made for certain networks that are common within the industry) As my program can do a lot, but for some configurations it needs additional help.
On one hand its not a exact science and yet it is exact because anything less then exact would render the data useless.
Hence why this is such a difficult industry specially if you take into account the latest developments within the hacking industry.
So yes while my program is a NG type of software it is by no means god and neither can it make any investigator god.
However it does provide some very needed additional tools that will speed up investigations and will be able to process more data faster and more accurate and thats something completely new within the industry.
There are loads of tools out there but none of them come even close to the level of quality, speed and accuracy not to mention that there are only a few tools that could on paper look as deep within the OS as my program can.
That said its not going to end here, currently i am talking to 3 companies who are world class (not saying names) to pool or expertise and start working together in terms Investigations, R&D, Training and Certification.
Obviously this has been planned even before i started my own company, as i have been working with some of these companies for years now. The team that FMA can utilize are specialists from various companies that work together on a case by case situation based upon expertise and needs. This has been a Industry standard we have been using for what? 8 years now or so.
However now we want to expand that and start officially do something and bundle the resources.
So one way or another i am going to do this, i have been doing it and my software and that of others within our team and partners is just a small part of a much bigger thing.
The need for credible capability within the cyber forensic world is HUGE and the demand is even more HUGE for quality software, not to mention the amount of malware and on-line crime is skyrocketing. Ask anyone within the Internet security world, and you will see that there are so much needs and so few credible capability to combat this.
So yeah a years ago i see this happen, i see where things where going to go... so hence why i jumped into that gap.
Not trying to be a hero here, and neither do i have the ambition to be a world leader within this specific branch.
But if i only can make things more easy for our own clients and partners and if we just can achieve a baseline level to combat on-line crime, then i think we have already achieved more then any other brand out there.
As there is just no centralized standoff & investigation capability within the industry. Ask around on the forum here, what steps they have to take if their network @work is being penetrated and what authorities they have to alert.
Then you will see its a maze and with the explicit exceptions of governmental agencies there are only a few companies around the world that have ANY credibility when it comes to cyber forensic's.
So yeah there is a need and i intend to play my part to fullfill that need.

crap...i did it again didn't i? another freaking 200 pages novel... pff lmao

Alright guys, As requested: 7182-A (For Windows 7 (32/64bit) is now online.

FMA Update revision: 7.1.8.2 >> 7182-A
All known bugs fixed.
DOWNLOAD NOW

Note: There are some AV Vendors that will claim that my program contains:
Gen:Variant.Graftor.148857 which is just a FP

MD5: 45f25dcfb295bd26322b129cf024bd77
SHA1: b292545ef47121b61bc57817332bda696cbd7e96

See screenshot

Side note: Is it me or are there a few AV vendors sharing signatures? Lol
I have already contacted several AV vendors and submitted my files to be removed from detection.
So it will probably take a few days for the "respected" brands to remove my software from their detection.
That being said: I guarantee beyond the reasonable doubt that my software is clean and NOT malicious.
However if you do not trust it then submit it yourself.

Kind Regards N.Nvt
