I would like to an inspect an trojan. I found unusual exe file in my home computer. However i have formated my home pc and reinstalled the window. But i kept the .exe, I would like to test exe in vmware to see what exactly it does. What would you recommend me to sniff traffic and see what is that all about?
There are a lot of utilities to trace an executable's actions, but wouldn't you prefer to check it with every antivirus in the market, in case it's a known trojan to avoid wasting your time? I do this all the time using virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com
