Tuluka 1.0.394
Detect even the stealthiest of malware with this powerful antirootkit tool

Tuluka is an advanced portable antirootkit application that can quickly check your system for hidden objects and other potential signs of stealthy malware.

The program has a straightforward tabbed interface that makes it generally simple to use. You can just click a tab like Processes, Drivers or Devices to see what Tuluka might have discovered, or click Full Report > Generate Report to view everything in a single window.

You do have to be careful how you interpret Tuluka's scans, though. On our test system, for instance, it highlighted several drivers as "suspicious". But this was only because they had IRP hooks, which wasn't surprising at all. So you'll need to carefully evaluate every highlighted object to see how suspicious it really is.

Fortunately there is plenty of help on offer, with the program able to detect SSDT, IDT and SYSTENTER hooks, suspect GDT descriptors, and hidden processes, drivers, devices and other objects. It can disassemble interrupt handlers, services, the start routines of system threads, and so on. And if you spot a dubious process then you can dump it to disk for further analysis, or terminate it immediately.

While the simple interface means all this functionality is very easy to access, there are no other concessions to beginners here. So if you're not sure what an IRP is, or why you should care about system hooks, then Tuluka probably isn't for you: there's no help file, and it's assumed that you already have a good low-level knowledge of how Windows works.

Verdict:

While it doesn't appear to have been updated for a while, Tuluka remains an interesting and powerful antirootkit tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
