The RemoteUtilities remote access tool by the Usoris company is commonly reported by antimalware tools. Today i ran Hitman Pro and ESET Online Scanner and both reported it.
Obviously, any remote access software is inherently risky. And this program is not as popular as cisco webex or citrix gotomypc or logmein, so perhaps that's a problem.
But, maybe there is something malicious going on with this software?
I use the software and they have an active forum with a paid support person Conrad Sallian who appears to be a native english speaker. I've posted there several times and gotten good response.
When LogMeIn ended their free program, RemoteUtilities responded by initiating their own. Free for 10 remote computers. It's pretty full-featured. It's pretty stable; i use it every day and i have to restart the local viewer about once a week, and the remote host about once a month, but i'm also behind the most recent version.
after our second review request Google lifted the malware warning at least in Google Webmaster Tools.
That had to do with Google flagging their "agent.exe" download.
But in this topic topic just a few days ago he reports
We received a response from them[Google] just now. They say that's it's still "malware".
Here's virus total on the "agent.exe" download and the two main images it forks
Agent.exe 21/54 detects, 5 up votes, 0 down
rfusclient.exe 12/54 detects, 2 up votes, 0 down
rutserv.exe 13/53 detects, 10 up votes, 0 down
So what do yall think?
