Hacktool.HideWindow is a utility program that hides the window of a program from the user. This allows an attacker to hide the presence of applications that normally are not hidden from users.

For example, IRC Trojans or backdoors often use Hacktool.HideWindow to hide the mIRC application window from the user, allowing themselves to carry out malicious activity on the users machine.
