Someone tell me if this is correct or not:
I run procmon and in the first few entries there is a System (kernel) ThreadCreate event.
In this event under the Stack tab I see some User (U) objects that are simply listed as mem addresses, not as File object names.

This system is infected with the infamous GPU hypervisor malware as seen in the malware forum here. I need to know if others see these <unknown> Stack entries, seen ONLY in System ThreadCreate events.
This will tell me a lot.
