About Hack-Tools

the Type designation 'Hacktool' was previously used by F-Secure to identify a utility program that can be used, or misused, to access remote computers.

With changes in the threat landscape today, programs previously identified as 'Hacktool' have been reclassified under the Riskware Category, with the Type designation 'Hack-Tool'.

The update in naming better clarifies the program's overall security profile in the current, more complex threat landscape.
