Re: SV: Norton AntiVirus 2005 treats Radmin as a Virus ??!

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
well?

Thanks,

Ron DuFresne

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