ScanMem is a simple interactive debugging utility for Linux (and now the Wiz), used to locate the address of a variable in an executing process. This can be used for the analysis or modification of a hostile process on a compromised machine, reverse engineering, or as a “Pokefinder” to cheat at video games.
