ADS Revealer is a free program that detects and removes Alternate data streams (ADS) used in NTFS file system. Alternate Data Streams provides virus writers with a method of hiding root kits (malware) on an infected machine and allows them to be executed without being detected by virus scanners. ADS are not malicious, but some malware has been designed to leverage ADS to conceal itself.
What is Alternate Data Stream? Like the function and purpose of fork in Macintosh system, the Alternate Data Stream (ADS) used in Windows NTFS file system allows users to associate additional information onto a file, such as the author and the title of a document, or other data on a graphic file, etc (they are created automatically).
With ADS Revealer you can scan and remove this hidden ADS from the hard drive, folder or from the whole system according to your settings. ADS Revealer can be downloaded from www.nod32.it (site language is Italian, program interface in English)
