Re: Norton AntiVirus 2005 treats Radmin as a Vi rus ??!

This is part of Symantec's support for "expanded threats", which
includes adware & spyware.  It is an option in Symantec AntiVirus
Corporate Edition version 9 as well.  We have it set to "log only", so
we're not automatically deleting these programs.  With SAV 9, it only
flags expanded threats during a scheduled scan, not in real-time.  I'd
like to see more capabilities, including the ability to fully
uninstall these programs, but because of questionable catches like
this one, we're going to have to rely on human intervention to make
some of the uninstall decisions.  I must say that it has been very
interesting (and a bit disconcerting) to see all the adware/spyware
that's on people's machines!

Radmin as a Virus ??!

hi ,list

I have installed Norton AntiVirus 2005 ,and when i open my
F:¥ directory ,Norton pops up and show that,"Norton AntiVirus
has detected a virus on your computer" "Boject Name
F:¥radmin.exe" "Virus Name Hacktool".

Is RemoteAdministrator a commercial remote control software
or a Hacktool ?

the following information is copied from the Radmin's site:
(http://www.radmin.com/)

"This fast, reliable, easy-to-use pc remote control software
saves you hours of running up and down stairs between
computers. Radmin allows you to take control of another PC on
a LAN, WAN or dial-up connection so you see the remote
computer's screen on your monitor and all your mouse
movements and keystrokes are directly transferred to the
remote machine. Radmin provides fast secure access to remote
PC's on Windows platforms.  "
