Default Attack Surface Analyzer 1.0 out of beta

Attack Surface Analyzer
The tool does not actually examine the installed software for vulnerabilities but scans the system before and after an installation has taken place. These include scans for added files, registry keys, opened ports and ActiveX controls. This process is designed to highlight changes that could have negative security implications. While the tool is mainly aimed at developers who want to test their application's impact on systems, it can also be used by administrators to check whether installing a program has made the system less secure.

I wonder if it could be reliably used to analyze the impact/changes made by malware installation... We'll find out!
