    1) Winzip 8.1

    While the program itself is not evil, it allows the attached file to enter the system. I always imagine the horse entering Troy in order to understand this concept. The horse looks like a nice gift (helpful utility) but it contains soldiers inside (unwanted/harmful utility). Therefore it is any application that allows the running of unwanted programs, regardless of the original intent/functionality of the application.

    Default The Answer

    I'm not going to answer the question but if you can't look at it and immediately know the answer without the need to even think about it - you may have a problem in this exam field.

    @Cheeblie: I get the feeling you missed my post

    But I agree, , that that is the way to remember it.

    To conclude this off-topic discussion: never open e-mail attachments if you don't know what's inside and don't download from Kazaa

    I would still answer the question as the legitimate "looking" software (as stated by cheeblie and Webmaster, WinZip 8.1), and although Panda (as well as other Anti-Virus companies) classify EliteWrap as a Trojan, it really is in the business of creating Trojans, not one itself (it does exactly what it was designed to do). Back Orifice for the purposes of Sec+, I believe, is classified as an illicit server.

    I believe the classification of virus/trojan/worm tools such as Virus Toolkits, scripts, and wrappers by the AV software manufaturers may add to the confusion a bit, but I'd have to say the study material I went over made each of the distinctions pretty clear for what CompTIA was looking for as answers to these objectives.

    Take Care,

    Default Employer not Comptia

    kbfromvt - I think you should be mad at your employer and not entirely at Comptia. My employer fits the bill for my tests if I pass and allows for 1 fail. I have not had a fail yet but I'm sure I will. Maybe you should negotiate with your employer again. I know how you feel. I had a baby in January and diapers are not cheap!
