SCCM Right Click Tools a Trojan? – Symantec’s Virus Definitions Have Gone Crazy…

After a look at the forums, it seems that Symantec’s virus definitions dated June 21, 2010 r2 have identified various components of the awesome SCCM Right Click Tools (which i personally couldn’t survive without) as “Trojan.Gen” Since this is a generic detection name “for many individual but varied Trojans for which specific definitions have not been created. A generic detection is used because it protects against many Trojans that share similar characteristics” this has to be a false positive. This is just another example of how definition based anti-virus tools are a out dated concept.
