er... yeah. You could just

>Radmin...so much damage in 1.3mb!
>Radmin...sure, it's called radmin now, wait till we hack your box and install the renamed version there and you have no real way of detecting it!
The assumption here is that your network is insecure since you've allowed a hacker in to plant his trojan horse. Therefore, it is not a surprise that you can't figure out how to detect radmin running on a PC.
>Radmin...what the f*ck does CRC mean anyway?
Ah, now it becomes clear who I'm dealing with.

If you are a system admin and you think Radmin is the root of all you troubles then you better go back to System Administration 101. A hacker can install _anything_ on a poorly protected machine. It could be radmin, or back orifice, or telnet, or ftp, or "Hacker mcBackdoor 1.0". It could be renamed to anything to look like a legitimate service.
You need to protect your network. Not from Radmin, but from ANY trojan. Radmin is a nice piece of software (if a bit out of date). That may make it attractive to some hackers. If you think Radmin is the source of your problems, then you might as well unplug your internet connection and REALLY get to the root of the problem.
Its impossible to count the advantages- Since Radmin's target marklet is so wide, from top level admins to helpdesks to users sharing resources to users working remotely... there's no end.... its hard to summarize in one shot. I hope soon really means soon. My credit card's on standby.
