What's New What's New

What's New (March 7, 2014)

  • PsExec v2.1
    This update to PsExec, a command-line utility that enables you to execute programs on remote systems without preinstalling an agent, encrypts all communication between local and remote systems, including the transmission of command information such as the user name and password under which the remote program executes.

What's New (January 29, 2014)

  • Process Explorer v16.0
    Thanks to collaboration with the team at VirusTotal, this Process Explorer update introduces integration with VirusTotal.com, an online antivirus analysis service. When enabled, Process Explorer sends the hashes of images and files shown in the process and DLL views to VirusTotal and if they have been previously scanned, reports how many antivirus engines identified them as possibly malicious. Hyperlinked results take you to VirusTotal.com report pages and you can even submit files for scanning.

What's New (January 21, 2014)

  • PsPing v2.0
    This is a major release to PsPing, a command-line utility that tests network bandwidth and latency. Version 2.0 adds UDP latency and bandwidth testing, support for timed tests, introduces custom histogram support, has an option for automatically opening Windows firewall ports during execution, and includes usability enhancements.

What's New (December 19, 2013)

  • Disk2vhd v2.0
    Disk2vhd, a utility for performing physical-to-virtual conversion of Windows systems, adds support for VHDX-formatted VHDs (thanks to Brendan Gruber for contributions), now supports WinRE volumes, can capture removable media, and includes an option to capture live volumes instead of relying on volume shadow copy (VSS).

What's New (October 23, 2013)

  • PsExec v2.0
    PsExec, a popular utility for executing processes on remote systems, introduces a new option, -r, that specifies the name PsExec assigns to its remote service. This can improve performance when multiple users are interacting concurrently with a system, since each will have a dedicated PsExec service.
  • Sigcheck v2.0
    This major update to Sigcheck, a command-line file version and digital signature verification utility, adds integration with the VirusTotal antivirus scanner aggregation service. Sigcheck can now check the status of a file against over 40 antivirus engines and launch the associated online VirusTotal report, and even upload files for scanning that have not already been scanned by VirusTotal. This release also reports the machine type of executable images, whether 16-, 32-, or 64-bit.
