    Default DAEMON TOOLS contains SPYWARE / TROJAN?

    Operating System: win2k
    Burning Software: nero enterpise 6
    Anti-virus Software: norton 2002
    DAEMON Tools Version: 3.46

    maybe a wrong question to be asked on the wrong place.. but anyway...

    does it contains some hidden code? like a trojan ? remote access software like ackcmd?

    I found lots of time a mysterious (random) tcp port opened (using active ports or fport) under process name "system" . The port numbers found were 1039,1054,4488, etc. Only one such port opened at a time and it doesnt get opened right after each reboot. it usually happens when I have daemon set as autostarts.

    the latest AV(norton/macfee) /spybot S&D reported nothing.

    I am hoping to get some daemon-tools users to keep an eye on their list of ports opened using port monitoring software.


    my system is win2k sp4 + lsass + rpc patch.
    with upnp, dcom, remote XXX disabled
    port 135,445 exist but plugged

    No, Daemon Tools does NOT contain spyware!
    Where did you download Daemon Tools? Did you get it from our download section?
    Try to check your system with AdAware.

    My firewall blocks all outgoing traffic that I haven't approved of (it asks every time something tries to "get out", until I give permanent clearance to that process), and Daemon Tools has never tried to access the net on my system. This is more than likely a problem you've contracted from something else. If you've downloaded Daemon Tools from a different site than the main site, you might have gotten a tampered copy, though I don't think that is the cause of your problems.

    Ok. I have enabled my firewall logs. and today I have incoming udp onp ort 3184 from my ISP DNS servers.

    Look liks I am probed by the DNS Servers. ?!

    SO it confirms Daemon-tools IS NOT RELATED to this issue. and doesnt contain any spyware/trojan. Thanks for the reply.

    I am just too paranoid.

    Default "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen found in DTLite.exe"

    So, Avira with the latest virus defs reports this when I download the Lite version **directly from site**

    What am I missing here? Why should this be happening?

    "TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen found in DTLite.exe"
