Seen (according to the makers) the files are made undetectable and the tool does not need to run continuous it is supposed to hard to detect and attack. It looks like it's not using alternate streams in NTFS as ADStools cannot find any alternate stream. Of course, the program's own database of hidden files/directory's is a prime target."

If imprinted foil seal under cap is broken or missing when purchased, do not use.
