Hello,

Please help me.

Every time I open my Internet Explorer browser, the anti virus send me the message shown here. What does it mean?

I am thinking  that the browser is sending my private data away to other people or to someone. The words' Private data and password access. allowed', what do they mean in a normal language?

Is it just the browser accessing the data or is it accessing and sending it?

 
 
Kaspersky Anti-Virus
(PIC: 2488):
Behavior similar to PDM. Private data and passwords access.
Allowed.

Hi,

It normally means that the antivirus suspiciously detects that your browser has the same behavior to PDM.  Access data but literally its nothing it doesn't sends your data out because IE is a trusted application. Nevertheless just to be sure doing a system scan is really a great idea. Kasperky is just trying to be careful.

Try using this online Virus Scanner http://virusscan.jotti.org/en and upload that IEXPLORE,EXE and see if its infected or not.

Kudos,

Steve

Hi,

Antony, you don’t have to worry. Your Internet Explorer will not send the saved Username or Password to anyone. You are getting this alert because Kaspersky feels that the Internet Explorer is acting like a Key logger. A key logger is applications which keep a record of what you type with the keyboard. You can be 100% sure that your saved passwords are safe in Internet Explorer.

Thanks and regards,

Skarbos Jay.

Hello my dear,

This is only due to unregistered software. It seems that you are using the unregistered version of Kaspersky Antivirus, and it is recommended that you register your antivirus software as soon as possible. I suggest that you use a different antivirus software than the Kaspersky Antivirus. It can spoil data and also can be used to steal your password. I suggest you to use Panda AntiVirus. It will guard against viruses, spyware, and also has a good firewall.

You can download this antivirus software from this link.
