Processor is a hacking tool. Though these programs are legitimate and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.
Processor is a command line application that can be locally or remotely run, as it is compatible with Telnet Server (tlntsvr).
Processor gathers information and interacts with the processes that are being run in the affected computer. It permits running processes to be viewed, as well as their owners, set of permissions, CPU time, creation time, etc.
Additionally, Processor allows processes to be ended or closed and to be suspended or resumed later. It also permits process affinity and priority to be changed.
Processor does not pose a risk by itself, but it can be used with malicious intentions.
Processor is difficult to recognize, as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
