Description : Forensic tool to find hidden processes and TCP/UDP ports

Unhide is a forensic tool to find hidden processes and TCP/UDP ports 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.
