VNC viewer detected as RemoteAdmin potential threat

Recommended Posts

Hi all !


We are running KAV for workstations here.


Last week I changed KAV settings in the Admin Kit to alert for potential threats (someone had been infected by "Security Protection" and KAV did not catch it).


Now, KAV is reporting errors about vncviewer.exe being a potential threat of "not-a-virus:RemoteAdmin.Win32.WinVNC.1102"


But vncviewer is only the CLIENT application, there is not remote admin potential threat in this. It would be OK for KAV to report VNC SERVER as a potential threat, but why the client ?


How can I easily remove this alert ?


Thanks a lot !

Thanks for your answer Helmut.


In my case, the exe is not in Program Files.

Isn't it possible to add vncviewer.exe to the trusted apps, whatever its location ?

Yes you can do this.

Just adding "vncviewer.exe", with no path information, is enough ?
