VIPRE apparently detects false "keylogger" on some laptops with Microsoft Live Application
There is a bizarre story on Networkworld that Samsung has issued some laptops with keylogger software installed, perhaps “inadvertently”. However Samsung has issued a statement that a security program called VIPRE can be fooled by Microsoft Live Application into detecting a false positive for a keylogger during the VIPRE security scan. Samsung’s statement is here.
It reminds me of another question: how does Webroot decide what is a “spy cookie” (it considers doubleclick to be one) versus a regular cookie?
