Remote Utilities Listening Server Hostname Detection

Info

Synopsis

The remote hostname was observed during a remote control session setup.

Description

The remote host is a Remote Utilities server awaiting remote connection requests. Remote Utilities is an application that allows users to access their computers (work or home) from anywhere in the world using the Remote Utilities client. The listening server application establishes a connection to an Internet server and allows the remote client to connect over the established HTTPS connection. As such, Remote Utilities has the ability to bypass firewalls and proxies. PVS has observed the hostname of this system during the session setup.

Solution

Ensure that such usage is in alignment with corporate policies and guidelines regarding remote access.
