This is a typical client-server remote administration utility that allows to connect to remote computer(s) and manage its (their) system resources in real time (similar to "pcAnywhere" by Symantec). This utility is known by the name "Remote-Anything", and is developed and distributed by the company TWD Industries (http://www.twd-industries.com
This program is detected and classified as Backdoor trojan because it absolutely meets a Backdoor-program's behavior:
hidden installation to the system
completely hides itself in the system when active
allows to administrate affected system from remote host
The server component of this program hides itself in the system and is not visible to an average user, unlike other remote administration tools that:
have standard installation and deinstallation procedures
have any visible interface (an icon in tray-bar, for instance)
Removing the Server
To remove the server component from the system you need to run AVP with latest updates and let it delete the server. You also need to delete the registry key manually.
You may also manually delete the registry key, reboot the computer and delete the server file SLAVE.EXE in the Windows directory.
You may also use a special removing utility that is distributed by TWD Industries on their Web site. http://www.avp.ch/av...backdoor/ra.stm
