This is how it is stated on the a-squard report.
I hope this helps.

I'm not familiar with BT, but isn't this the dialer that gets you connected to your broadband?

It has the characteristics of a dialer because it is one - but get rid of it and say bye-bye to your Broadband! In other words, a false positive to be put in your white list.

Sorry if I've assumed too much here - I'm a cable user who doesn't properly understand what dialing into broadband means (but my brother's computer does it so I've seen it happen)...
