    Have you heard about Microsoft's Project Freta - a new free-to-use Linux forensics and rootkit malware detection service?

    The cloud offering, dubbed Project Freta, is a snapshot-based memory forensic mechanism that aims to provide automated full-system volatile memory inspection of virtual machine (VM) snapshots, with capabilities to spot malicious software, kernel rootkits, and other stealthy malware techniques such as process hiding.

    The project is named after Warsaw's Freta Street, the birthplace of Marie Curie, the famous French physicist who brought X-ray medical imaging to the battlefield during World War I.
