I have developed a Remote Desktop Connections manager to manage multiple machines between the two different networks using MSTSC ActiveX control in C#. Also, I am keeping the server, username, password (enc) and such information in a file. And when I click connect it will automatically open a window and connect to the server.

But, Symantec tells it as a risk, Bloodhound.SONAR.2. As per Symantec, it could be either a keylogger or an unknown risk. Please advise why it tells as the potential risk in connecting remote desktop and passing username and password to auto-connect..

The threat writeup says:
"Bloodhound.SONAR.2 is used exclusively by Symantec antivirus products when a potentially unknown risk is found using Symantec Bloodhound technology. Bloodhound technology consists of heuristic algorithms that are used to detect unknown risks."

Which means that your program while (probably) not a virus or keylogger in itself, is exhibiting traits with Symantec associate with such threats. Exactly what, and why, they do not say - for obvious reasons.

Your best bet is to talk to them directly. They may be willing to help you modify your code to avoid a false positive detection - I don't know, since I have never had to try. They are about your only bet though!
