I presume cheat engine injects a DLL that calls GetProcessHeaps(),

However, there is a SysInternals tool made by Windows called VMMap that collects heaps without injection (as far as I can tell).

I presume that VMMap is parsing the PEB/TEB of the target process to collect heap information.

What are the tradeoffs between these two? Wouldn't the PEB method be slightly preferred at is is less invasive as DLL injection?
