CIFS :: determine process that access a file

Hi everyone,


Is it possible to determine which process access a file?



In the case of protection against ransomware I would like to know if I can see what process (on a windows machine or linux) access a file.



Can I get such information via CLi or GUI?



Thx 4 any answer,




Re: CIFS :: determine process that access a file

I believe a shell command "lsof" can show you the list of open files along with the PIDs of the processes that access those files in Linux. Not sure about windows.
