Kaspersky NERC Alert: Free Verification Tool

In response to the recent NERC Alert, GridSME compiled a tool that functions as a relatively quick way of identifying if Kaspersky software is on a system or verifying that Kaspersky is no longer installed after using their product removal tools. The tool recursively hashes the contents of the directory you tell it to, and compares each file hash to the NIST NSRL database of known Kaspersky file hashes , which is included in the zip archive available for download below. It can also be used “offline” by using a txt hash input list that is then compared to the NSRL database.
