FastScanner is a software application capable of detecting packers, cryptors and compilers in PE files programmed with ASM and made to quickly access plugins. It’s wrapped in simple and user-friendly interface, facilitating practical options.
It’s not necessary to go through a setup procedure because the program is portable. You can unzip the downloaded package and just double-click the executable file to gain access to the main app window.
Scan PE files for packers, cryptors and compilers
You can open any PE file using the integrated file browser while taking into account that any packers, cryptors or compilers are automatically identified by the app. If such objects exist, then it will blink a green “POSITIVE” label right in the center of the window. Moreover, you can find out the PE file’s entry point, base of code, image base, EP section, first bytes and base of data, in addition to the detection result (description).
Customize program options and load plugins
As far as options are concerned, you can integrate FastScanner into the Windows Explorer right-click menu in order to swiftly scan PE files, make the main window stay on top of other running programs as well as download the latest signature and plugin support files.
When it comes to supported plugins, you can use AT4RE PE Editor, Overlay Tool, Hash & Crypto Detector, Signature Manager and Signature Grabber, which are also included in the downloaded package as DLLs. The main window can be sent to the taskbar by clicking the “Minimize” button in the menu bar.
Outdated signature database
Unfortunately, the program hasn’t been updated for a long time and its signature database is outdated. Nevertheless, it worked smoothly on Windows 10 in our tests. We haven’t experienced any compatibility issues with the latest operating system, and the app had minimal impact on the computer’s performance. Thanks to its approachable options, FastScanner can be easily used to detect cryptors, packers and compilers in PE files.
