KIS2011 Reporting ie-spell check 100% dangerous?

Hello,

I have three PC's at home here and all have Kaspersky 2011 Internet security installed on all of them. Also installed on them is "IE spell checker" and one PC KIS had a pop-up Warning that "ie-spell check" was 100% Dangerous and was asking me to either allow, allow once, or block. The version is "251_b_106". Its installed on all PC's, but no warnings on the others which is weird b/c they have the same version and protecton.

Anyhoo, if you have that version, their is a newer one that hope has a low risk level. KIS said the older one was a 100% risk, ...It doesn't get any worse, specially with a program looking at what you type.

My advice is to update to latest version "v2.6.4_build 573" if you have version "251_build_106" Un-Install the old version first from control panel "UN-install programs"

Why take a chance, but its so strange that with the same Internet Security, It warned me only on one machine, when that older version od ie-spell is Installed on all threeSystems.
----
EDIT: Kaspersky reports same warning for ie spell's latest version so I've removed the link. Users of IE Spell should be on alert until this resolved. I will be posting over on Kaspersky form about this, but it sometimes takes awhile for a responce b/c they want to make sure.

Go to this post and see Kaspersky's warning when attempting to install latest version:

IE7Pro adds a variety of useful features to Internet Explorer 7, that are accessible from a newly added icon in the IE status bar. They include a spell checker for online forms

Un-Install ie-spell, downloading and installing IE7Pro

Might also go back to firefox as well.

Just went to install the latest version and KIS2011 said the same thing. I can't trust ie-spell anymore, unless Kaspersky is getting it wrong. This is what I got while installing the latest version of ie-spell:

I reccomend either a much older version, use Jacee suggestion of "IE 7Pro", or go with Zig and drop Internet Explorer altogether for Firefox.

I've used firefox many times in the past and for long periods of time, its just when I do a reinstall I get used to using ie before I get around to installing firefox.

This is unreal, I have to think Kaspersky is getting it wrong, but I aint chancing it.

SO DON"T INSTALL THE LATEST VERSION EITHER UNTIL THIS GETS RESOLVED.

Its not worth the risk with a program that works in concert of your typing, ...I say its a no go!

Its possible its a false positive.



I didn't install it, but I did download it and start the installer.
Norton seemed fine with it, for what its worth.

So thats 2 that think its OK.


Still, false positive or not, I can understand where some concern may be.
Wonder what it is about it Kaspersky doesn't like...

It may work fine, but be doing some dasterly things like keyloging or just reporting back what ever gets spell checked. ....dunno, just know KIS popped up warming about both versions on 2 machines. Submited the encripted files to them for review. Should here something by tomorrow.

Strange... no other security program finds any issues with ieSpell. I checked it with MSE... no issues.

Even the download links for ieSpell are from reputable mirror sites like CNET, Major Geeks, ands SnapFiles. They run their own security checks before offering apps for download. Their reputations would be immeasurably hurt if they offered spyware, keyloggers, etc to an unsuspecting public.

Be interesting to see what Kaspersky has to say about this.
