"Malware initial assessment tool."

PeStudio is a security package that can perform malware assessments on an executable file before opening it. Malware tends to try to hide its true intentions, but this makes it easier for security packages to detect this unusual behavior. Executable files are scanned but not opened, so using this software presents no risk to the user. An XML file is used to access the risk factors. This XML file can be edited manually by the user to change the sensitivity of the malware scanning and other preferences for the program too. Scans include file archives too. There is also a command-line option when using PeStudio.

PeStudio Key Features:

  • Perform initial malware scans on executable files
  • Use an XML file for preferences and scanning sensitivity which can be altered by the user
  • Command-line option for scanning
  • Does not open the executable which removes any risk factor

PeStudio is a malware scanner for executables before they are opened up.
