-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Caution with Amust

I hope so - one of my folders would not delete.  And though it showed nothing 
was in it the scan 
still found it.  But that is the way rootkits work, the sysyem does not report 
them.

I discovered the program called Amust on this board installed it and found
it useful.



However after scanning for rootkits I had a hit with this program so I
deleted the program,

washed my system and did another rookkit scan and it still came up positive.
I searched

the registry and tried to delete all Amust registry keys (of which I found 3
remaining after

deleting the program) I could not delete one of them using delete in
regedit. Washed

again and ran another scan for rootkit again a positive hit for Amust.



I can neither confirm nor deny that this rookkit hit is malicious in anyway
however I though

I would warn the group and they could make their own deduction whether they
wanted to

install the program or not.



In my opinion any "program" that tries to completely hide from you so you
cannot tell it is

on your machine should be considered a threat.
