If the client software is detected as malicious this would indeed be a bad call. However, if Symantec labels the
server as a backdoor risk, it's likely because it was distributed as part of a malware package not so long ago (a few
weeks back). Still, this doesn't justify to label the Radmin Client as a security risk. The Radmin software is widely
used for remote administration in the same manner as VNC, Terminal Services or "Netbus" ;-)
And aty least VNC documents it should be run under a protocol that
encrypts the connections, one would hope.susppect then Radmin and
the other 'tools' would as well document and make plain that fact as

OK, so you're a Ph.D. Just don't touch anything.
