A utility designed to access remote computers. It may be used with malicious intent.
Once detected, the F-Secure security product will automatically disinfect the suspect file by either deleting it or renaming it.
Detection names starting with 'Virtool' are Generic Detections for utility programs that can be misused to access a computer system and perform actions that may be unauthorized by the machine's primary user.
About Generic Detections
Unlike more traditional detections (also known as signatures or single-file detections) a Generic Detection does not identify a unique or individual malicious program. Instead, a Generic Detection looks for broadly applicable code or behavior characteristics that indicate a file as potentially malicious, so that a single Generic Detection can efficiently identify dozens, or even hundreds of malware.For more information about Generic Detections, see the Other:W32/Generic description.
