As promised in my earlier blog post, I’ve finalized the utility and made it available for download here. I won’t be releasing source code for the moment because I don’t want to encourage people to start adding this kind of code into their own malware programs, nor to encourage the Symantec folks to start unprotecting every process on the system.
So until then, have fun with the tool, whether it is to explore previously protected processes, or to try out various system and application behaviour when certain processes are made protected. Here’s a screenshot of audiodg.exe after being unprotected. Try it on your own system to see the before/after difference.
