Hi,

We managed to add detection for TightVNC 2.x

However, since the file information in version 2.x on the main EXE is identical to that in 1.x, now you will have both 1.x and 2.x detected.

The only remedy is to manually add an ignore rule - since the only other choice would be to remove detection for 1.x entirely.

If you feel this is a problem, I suggest you contact the vendor. Further improving this detection is beyond my power.


hope this helps.
