    Virus False Positive?

    I've just had a couple of people come to me saying that their Symantec AV has reported a Hacktool Rootkit in the file ddnt.sys (my laptop as well ops: ).
    Can't find this as a reported problem anywhere on the net. Anyone else had this and is it a real issue?

    Cheers
