Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Completely hidden application

Here is one that I couldn't figure out for months! Will I be surprised if anyone can come up with a solution to this.

How do you create a program that is completely hidden from the user. That is, it does not appear in the taskbar and not in the TASKLIST either. Getting it out of the taskbar is easy, but when you hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete it is always there. Hope you can help!


Sorry, I don't have a ready answer for you, either. I would just point out that every program must use memory, and it will probably always be possible for other programs to browse the heap or other data structures to figure out what is there.
