Ok, we managed to confirm this issue with the server in some circumstances. We will be fixing this as soon as possible and update the file and this thread.

Thank you for your patience.

P.S. Note: starting version 2.7 RU Server only works on 64-bit systems.

Cristian, and John

Do you have a 32-bit OS installed on the server machine?

Cristian,

Im having problems with the server:

And when exactly do you receive this error? Are you trying to connect to running server or just make it run after the installation?

Nice!
I was hoping for a feature I asked (a window to show Internet ID similar to agent version using host) but it still missing.
Maybe next time.
Keep going this way!

Hi Cristian,

Unfortunately, this specific feature wasn't planned for this update, but we'll definitely implement it in one of the nearest updates. We also want to see it in the product as soon as possible.

RU removed by Bitdefender

Hello,

Gen:Trojan.Heur.DP.ZT0@aqKIFxni
Infected

Note the "heur" part that means "heuristic". The file is new, the antivirus program just doesn't know about it yet and classifies it as malware using heuristics algorithms.  This is true about all other links that you provided below - take a closer look at detection names. Most of them either say "heuristic" or "riskware" (potentially unwanted program/application, PUA).

Besides, for any new release antivirus programs start to immediately classify the software as riskware or even malware. This time there are very few actually. It used to be much worse with previous releases where we could easily get 20+ false positive detections on new build.

This is how antivirus software works these days - they prefer to be on the safe side and block just everything that might be dangerous (remote software is usually in this category). It usually takes a couple of weeks of sending false positive requests before the detections are removed.

Hi Conrad

And the funny part is that the Home [free] edition of BD ignores RU installer and the software itself.

Hello,

Thanks for the details. Yes, apparently there is some inconsistency about this detection. Even more unusual is the fact that this version has been around for almost a year now (the last 6.8.0.1 build was released in August 2017) and only now BitDefender decided, all of a sudden, that it's "malware".

Remote Utilities beta 6.9 has been released today, by the way:

Hello Artur,

Thank you for your message.

Already reported to Bitdefender as a False Positive but it didn't help.

Do you mean you reported to BitDefender that they blocked legitimate software on your computers and they refused to help? That is, they can simply "think" that you shouldn't use certain legitimate software because they say so.

Unfortunately, I don't know how we can help in this situation. How can an antivirus software vendor that cannot distinguish between good and bad software even be trusted? What if they are similarly incapable of detecting real malware when time comes and thus jeopardize security of your systems?

session logs

Hello Chas,

The idea being for me to see who logs in and does what. Without their ID / IP I have no idea.

I understand. In the future we are going to do the following:

- Make the ID server to transfer the IP address of the Viewer to the Host log. Now you cannot see the Viewer IP address because it stays on the server side and is effectively hidden from the Host.

- Implement a full-fledged reporting/auditing system that would allow the admin to check who accessed what and in which connection mode.

Thanks.
