LANguard Network Security Scanner - Attendant Service
Used by GFI Network Security Scanner
  Craig Shuey   (further information)
Used by GFI Languard Network Security Scanner--not dangerous unless you have unauthorized software installed on your computer and your SysAdmin is running this!
  Mattitude, SysAdmin  
NOT spyware. If you didn't install it, then be afraid. It is installed when you install languard. It's used to run scheduled vulnerability scans. I.e. it tries to automate numerous hacking techniques. If you did install Languard, then have no worries.
The GFI LANguard N.S.S. status monitor allows you to monitor the status of active scheduled scans and software update deployments. You can also cancel scheduled deployment operations.

Active while the Languard process is running. If you are a network admin and have not authorized a user to install this program, remove it.
