Fayetracker (formerly FT)
FT is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping users detect the presence of remote intrusions on their computers.
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you to need to identify suspicious connections, without having to go through installation steps.
The tool is able to display all the running utilities and processes found on your computer that are currently connected to the Internet, so you can easily identify the ones that may affect your system security and compromise your sensitive data.
FT sports a clean and simple layout that automatically lists all the running applications as soon as you run the program.
The utility provides details about the IP address for each process and lets you view the software location on the hard drive.
Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to kill the selected application, switch between a simplified or detailed mode, as well as track the route of the selected process and save the information to a file.
Since there aren’t many configuration settings, even less experienced users can set up the dedicated parameters on the fly.
During our testing we have noticed that the tool carries out a task quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
All things considered, FT offers a simple software solution for helping users identify possible threats that may pose serious problems to their system security.
