Computer Associates Asset Management - does it spy on me?

by easy123 / April 15, 2005 1:33 PM PDT

Does anyone know what this app does? I noticed that my employer installed in (they use CA Unicenter Software Delivery to install remotely) on my PC. Does it spy on you about what you've installed/uninstalled? Does it do anything else sneaky? Thanks!

They get to instrument the machine to do any surveilance they want with the module. Log all web sites, etc.

Nothing sneaky about it. It's designed to do this job.
