Search for disguised executables

MZreveal is a tiny tool which lists disguised executables in a folder tree (that is, executable files which don't have an EXE or DLL extension).

This might be useful for detecting executable code hidden by malware (renaming virus.exe to virus.txt, say).

The program scans its current folder and all subfolders, and annoyingly there's no way to point it anywhere else. If you want to scan from your User folder, say, you must drag and drop it there, first.

On launch, a "Bare filenames" prompt gives you the option to display filenames only, or full paths.

MZreveal then scans your specified folder tree, looking for executable files which don't have an EXE or DLL extension.

Anything it discovers is displayed, along with its executable type (DLL or EXE).

The list of disguised executables is also saved to an MZreveal.log file, in the same folder as MZreveal.exe.


It's not exactly a program you'll use every day, but MZreveal can be useful if you're hunting malware, and it's also quite educational (in a geeky sort of way).

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
