SecurityRisk.Settec is a rootkit that can hide processes, prevent access to files, and may cause problems for legitimate programs that have access to DVD or CD drives.
This rootkit was designed to hide a legitimate application, but it can be used to hide other objects, including malicious software.
Your Symantec program detects SecurityRisk.Settec.
This security risk is part of Settec Alpha-DVD software, which is present on some KinoWelt content-protected DVDs. When a DVD containing this software is started from a DVD drive, the security risk is installed on the computer. It has been reported that the German release of "Mr & Mrs Smith" will include Settec's Alpha-DVD copy protection.
