Kaspersky + SciTE

9 posts in this topic

KIS 7 reacts to a file (detected: riskware not-a-virus:Monitor.Win32.Hooker.s File: C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoItMacroGenerator\TheHook.dll), is it possible to remove it or it is Kaspersky's problem?

The file reported is a DLL (originally written by a guy named Scott Seligman) of functions for examining mouse and keyboard input. As the AV report says it's not malware of itself, and has legitimate uses as a tool (used by AutoItMacroGenerator in this case), but since it was once freely available and there is malware out there that makes use of it Kaspersky gives you this caveat.


Yes yes yes, there it was. Youth must go, ah yes. But youth is only being in a way like it might be an animal. No, it is not just being an animal so much as being like one of these malenky toys you viddy being sold in the streets, like little chellovecks made out of tin and with a spring inside and then a winding handle on the outside and you wind it up grrr grrr grrr and off it itties, like walking, O my brothers. But it itties in a straight line and bangs straight into things bang bang and it cannot help what it is doing. Being young is like being like one of these malenky machines.

I have sent this file to Kaspersky and he answered:

Hello.

This is not false alarm.

Please quote all when answering.
