Perhaps its a safe tool since the real version is likely known for being flagged by antiviruses due on the tool for becoming pose security risk.

You need to accept the license agreement to download so likely for some experimentation is applicable.

Hi,

First read is on Fred de Vries site:

[Released] DarkComet RAT Remover 1.0 : http://fred-de-vries.blogspot.fr/2012/03/release-darkcomet-remover-10.html

'The civil war in Syria rages not only on the ground but also on internet. The opposition has made increasing use of platforms such as Facebook to organize and spread their message. In response the regime have tried to disrupt these activities by defacing websites and spamming Facebook pages.
The regime is using the DarkComet RAT (called Backdoor:Win32/Fynloski.A by Microsoft) to spy on their own people.

The creator of the DarkComet RAT was disgusted by that behaviour and now has retaliated with a specially created tool to detect and remove his own DarkComet RAT to help the oppressed Syrian people: DarkComet RAT Remover.'

Well, now we are the Download button ( in purple color 'Download the Remover' ;) ) - first click on the 'Download' tab on the home page of Darkcomet RAT Remover v1.0 : http://www.darkcomet-rat.com/

That's all.

Thank you!:D

Nothing to worry about, I downloaded DC-RAT-Remover. (Executed outside of Bufferzone).





[hr]

I got a different outcome when I right-click > Run as Admin. :huh:

Did anyone else get a similar result to as I did?

Also, will anyone be adding this to their portable tools?

Earth: I've tested it on laptop under Toolwiz Timefreeze isolation environment and run as admin then the result appears to have a same threat like yours.

Perhaps a glitch/bug there.

I run as admin:

.. and I have this 'Your system is infected by DarkComet, cure it.'
(because 'Process: Security Center Disabler' ..)
Then I clicked ''Do nothing' of course.

I tested without - and with: Security Center and Windows firewall .. (in Services - disabled, then enabled these two ..) - and I get this same 'Your system .. cure it'.

It's true, I don't have any AV.:D

I don't have pressing need of this remover.;)

So far if it is run by admin I have not seen any clean pc's. It always says infected for me. Even with a wipe and clean install.. I highly suspect all false positives with an added bonus of it shutting off windows security center... or possibly worse! After trying this tool. I feel like a total wipe with bios flash and new hard drive before I feel close to safe. What was I thinking trusting a hacker supposedly reforming?

Yes the news is official. The project is dead now, he posted the information on his Facebook fan-page.

Backdoor code writer shuts up shop over arrest fears

The creator of a backdoor access tool has pulled the plug on the project amid fears that misuse of the software could land him in prison.

The DarkComet Remote Admin Tool (RAT) was always controversial due to its documented use by hackers, despite creator Jean-Pierre Lesueur claiming it was a development and access tool with legitimate uses.

After discovering it was being used by Syrian officials to spy on opposition leaders - and under pressure from authorities - Lesueur said he was stopping distribution of the tool before he landed in hot water.
Lesueur was worried he could be held responsible for its misuse, whether by hackers or security officials in regimes that could use it to infiltrate dissidents’ computers.
