Shortcut Scanner v1.0

Vista / Win10 / Win7 / Win8 / WinXP
Shortcut Scanner can detect broken, suspicious or malicious shortcuts in Windows and remove them.

A shortcut is considered dangerous if:
  • If the target application points to a command prompt (Terminal, PowerShell, Ubuntu Bash)
  • If it contains dangerous keywords often used to create malicious shortcuts
  • An argument overflow, which means that the shortcut command line is more than the Microsoft Windows limitation of 260 characters (MAX PATH)
  • Shortcut file size is above 4KiB
  • Contains arguments plus one of above flags
