There's no pros.
It's got 2 Trojans on it!
When I clicked on the link to download this my anti-virus popped up whilst it downloaded! Take my advice, DON'T DOWNLOAD IT!
there are no pros for it
Beware when downloading this piece of software it has 4 major trojan horses in it my norton blocked it straight away so be carefull my advise dont download it.
I doubt this is the real creator that published it.
It is a flase positive. The source code (and program) was available at officepoltergeist.com, until the domain expired. Another version is available that is simply an update of the source code of officepoltergeist. Neither versions are trojans, really. See the description here: http://officepoltergeist.110mb.com/.
it has nothing but viruses
This does what it claims to do. Now the people who have stated that this is recognized as a Trojan Horse are absolutely right, it is. However, it is neither harmful, nor can it be used for damaging purposes. It is extremely limited in what it can do, and therefore is harmless. So as a sumarization, this is a harmless and fun Trojan horse, which does not run again, after the victims machine has been shut down. (Unless your smart enough to edit their registry and force it to start up, NOT that I would DO that)
I think there are so many more things which could be integrated into this. But it is true that those things I have in mind might border on illegal. :)
The Norton Systemworks on my computer detected Trojan Horse in the Zip Cabinet of this software. Please verify.
Well, the publisher's description certainly made it look glorious.
The files are infected with various trojans, according to my Symantec Antivirus app. Maybe this is some weird reaction of my scanner, but I would never trust it on my box. Don't download this..

the files arent viruses, calm down, some aintivirus recognize things that look like viruses and it detects them. poltergeist isn't a virus, but it looks like one

symantec is full of crap itself ... you should get spybot search & destroy instead

It identifies it as a trojan horse because IT IS A TROJAN HORSE. Just... you know, not in a bad way. I don't think the AV vendors are saying that it has hidden and/or malicious functionality... after all, you can download the source and compile it for yourself if you like.
