The program is named "Cain & Abel." Shouldn't that be a clue?

I've sent this file out to a Virus/Trojan forensics lab, and they found that indeed, the Abel part of this product *IS* a Trojan, however the Cain part is now.

So yes, its properly flagged as a Trojan, and any AV that doesn't pick it up, should be picking it up.

Thanks for your work and your clear answer :). Neither Abel nor Cain is flagged as trojan anymore, though (i.e. since I updated this program - both of them were before). I have also updated Avast! to 4.1.412 and VPS to 0424-3.

Well that blows, because i'm told Abel is a Trojan by Forensics friend.  Also, i've now confirmed that with 3 other AV companies, and someone I trust to analyze, which is Kevin over at BOClean Anti-Trojan.  He says its a trojan too.

Wonder why Avast no longer recognizes it?   ???

Well, what version did you send exactly ? I trust you, and I trust Avast! : I might have misconfigured something too :)...
