This is a critical request for urgent and immediate action(s).
I downloaded Process Hacker in order to test CIS capability for self protection and CIS failed miserably. Yesterday however, I downloaded Process Explorer from Microsoft Sysinternals and tried to kill CIS processes and CIS then succeeded to defend itself.
Today is a whole different story Process Hacker was able to kill both cfp.exe and cmdagent.exe.
1) I downloaded CIS 3.10
2) I installed CIS 3.10
3)I downloaded Process Hacker from: http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/
4) I installed Process Hacker and ran it.
5) CIS D+ gave me a warning that Process Hacker was trying to modify some registry key(s)
6) I unticked remember my answer and allow the file to completely execute.
7) Therefore, Process Hacker gui appeared on the screen.
I located CIS processes and right click; I selected kill and the processes were killed one after the other.
CIS was completely dead. I really do not know what's going now. FYI I also tried Online Armor and I also killed Online Armor Processes with Process Hacker. However, One of Online Armor processes put up a fight I had to select Terminator from the list, and OA was dead. I'm quite scared right now. I thought CIS self-protection was impregnable.
Could some of you guys repeat the test and see If you could replicate the same results in order to verify my findings. Please.
Mayday, Mayday, Mayday. This is NOT a joke. The situation is extremely important.
