    I tried to download a software called Angry IP Scanner to run off my USB stick. When I proceeded to click the download link, Avira popped up and gave me a warniing. Now I'm not sure if Avira is making the error here or this software is a hoax.

    Here's the link:

    I downloaded and used it from that site, but it was quit some time ago. At that time the app. was quit safe. It is also open source so I have a feeling it is a FP.

    Avira detects it as SPR/Tool.Angry, which is correct.
    It a tool in the (S)ecurity or (P)rivacy (R)isk category.

    Umm, no. Useful site with excellent applications (Angry IP scanner being the main one). This is incredibly useful in compiling lists of the IPs and hostnames of all computers connected on a lan or even the internet. This in turn is very nice when you are administering the network and need to do a series of tasks (like shutdown the whole network), by using the list.

    The other program works quite well in remotely administering windows computers without having to set up a bloated program or have the user detect the process, so that any guests on the computers won't be able to do any malicious activity as long as they are being actively moderated.

    Siteadvisor is not some deity that is always correct, and knowledge behind such talk makes the talk much more valid and useful.

    To answer the original poster, it always helps to post what your antivirus flags the file as since it will give us the detection and simplify helping you. And yes, the application is perfectly safe, I have it one my jump drive and use it quite often.

    Cheers,

    Just one more of the reasons I do not like some one else`s opinions of sites I visit or don`t. Do not like host files either. (but we risk going OT so I am off my soapbox now)

    Another case of an application being flagged basically because of its` potential use. Nothing more.

    The SPR category is optional, and actually defaults to "off" in the latest build.

    If you are happy to use this type of software, then just click on default values in the extended threat categories section, and there will be no more detections for it.

    Its Riskware, so you can use it without problems....Certain AVs are more "trigger happy" than others when it comes to Riskware. In the end, its all about "Risk" and what exactly is the definition of that word by various AV vendors. ;)

    Here is what makes me so angry at the A$$ Hats who pull CR(*P like deliberately falsely marking something as spyware when it is not..

    Be it AngryIPScanner or Majic Jelly Bean they absolutely have legitimate purposes and like any management tool can be abused.

    (Sort of like Firearms, Cars, Chain Saws & Women.)


    Lets say some ^(**& gets in and substitutes a hacked version at some download site for a legitimate version.

    The AV Product alerts just like it would with a legitimate version of the product. Then you install it and have to work your a$$ off to clean things up when it trys to get out and you catch it.

    I don't understand why ipscan is tagged as risky software, while nmap isn't
