We have already contacted BitDefender. Here is what they answered:
Thank you for your patience!
We have received an answer from our Virus Analysis Labs. The file is PUA and currently detected by our engines. As such, the detection will remain. If an user would like to keep the app from being blocked on their machine they can always add a manual exception.
Kindly let us know if we can be of any further assistance.
Have a nice day!
He who has eyes to see, let him see. Yes, if you control hundreds of remote computers and you happened to be a customer of BitDefender - go ahead and add Remote Utilities to exceptions manually just because there is a virus analyst at BitDefender who thinks that the program MIGHT cause a threat.
I don't even know to comment on this. By the way, the BitDefender detection spawned a whole lot of detections from other a/v programs because they re-use the same engines and signature databases.
This topic is about the recently added persistent notification (alert) near the system tray, as well as some other changes to how free/trial license works.
1. Persistent notification. This one is shown if you are connecting to a remote Host/Agent from a Viewer registered with a free license key or a Viewer in the trial mode.
This message is NOT shown if you are connecting from a Viewer registered with a commercial license.
2. The 'Online' option in the MSI Configurator no longer works for free/trial users. That is, signing a custom Host or Agent package with our digital signature is now only available for paid customers.
Paid license users - regardless of the version they use - are NOT affected.
--- Announcement as of January 30, 2022 ---
Based on the feedback we received with regards to #1, we decided that we'd modify the feature a bit:
- Windows 10 and later: the notification can be made visible for the remote side only, and invisible on the Viewer side. We are still investigating this option, but most likely it is possible to implement.
- Ability to pick the corner in which the notification will be shown.
- Translate the message to other languages
Feel free to ask your questions and post your comments. This message will be updated with your frequently asked questions and our answers to them for everyone's convenience.
The toolbar will show up if you move your mouse cursor towards the top edge of the screen for 1-2 seconds. However, if it doesn't work still please let us know and we'll test it and see if we can reproduce it.
By the way, you can cycle through view modes (Windowed, Full Screen, Full screen stretch etc.) if you press F12 on your keyboard. Also, see other useful keyboard shortcuts.
