    Online Armor reports a Hook_Mouse in MSVBVM60.DLL by mbam.exe. What's that
    about?

    I know it is a legit file, I'm talking about mbam.exe using a mouse hook
    into it. Maybe mbam.exe does that to monitor a users mouse movements? I
    don't know.

  6. Ummmm... more like so MBAM can use a mouse in the GUI.

    Almost all Windows apps can use a mouse in the GUI but don't set off a
    mouse hook alert in Online Armor.

    I don't see why it would, plus Dustin used to work there and he said it
    didn't. If it had a mouse hook and Keylogger, I'm sure someone would
    have caught that by now.

    I expect it is just a spurious warning but may ask the people at Online
    Armor why anyway. I find 99.9% of detections in all security apps are false
    positives.

  15. No, that is NOT true.

    Really?

    I heard that they had to let you go as technically your malware
    analyzing abilities wheren't exactly up to MBAM standards...!

    Was I misled, do you suppose?

  18. Bullsh!t and I have the resignation letter to prove it.

    I have also heard about what you were doing from people like Tony Klein who regretted even
    comminicating w/you and stated "I started to suspect he might have a hidden agenda of some
    sort."

    Yes, really. I was present when he resigned.
    You heard wrong. Tony Klein should be ashamed of himself. He was your
    "secret source" right, David? heh.
    I don't think you were intentionally mislead, but you were regardless.
    And, you exposed a potential untrustworthy user to boot, I do thank you
    for that. :)

    Tony has lost a considerable amount of respect from me for doing that.
    While his information was certainly in error, he still shouldn't be
    running off at the mouth about things which are internal to a company. I
    might speak to Bruce or Marcin about that, now that I'm freshly reminded.
