Abstract

The MoVP 1.3 plugin, named deskscan, enumerates desktops, desktop heap allocations, and associated threads. In the GUI landscape, a desktop is essentially a container for application windows and user interface objects. Malware utilizes desktops in various ways, from launching applications in alternate desktops (i.e. so the current logged-on user doesn't see) to ransomware that locks users out of their own desktop. We'll see some examples of both in this post.
