Title: MonsterKill
OS: Win32
Language: C++
File: monsterkill.zip

MonsterKill is a small console program that can kill other processes. It's difference from the traditional "kill" command is the method through which the process is killed. Some processes have security settings such that "terminating" the process is not allowed. However, writing to the processes memory and starting remote threads is allowed. As a result, it is very easy to kill these processes by starting a remote thread that simply performs a divide by zero. This causes an uncaught exception, which terminates the application. The scenarios where security access is mis-configured in this way is probably quite rare, but I've seen it on at least two occaisions on computers in a "controlled" setting.
