    In this latest release there is an issue that we're aware of which occurs with this keylogging alert. We've seen it occur in other applications as well (not just Firefox) and basically it is a false positive. We'll be addressing it in our next update (due in a couple of weeks).

    In the meantime, if the alert becomes bothersome, you can choose "Allow" and then "Remember this answer" to have it not display any longer.

    Sorry for any confusion!

    Thanks members for bringing this to CyberHawk Support's attention. I been getting many of those, although not seriously interfering with work, the frequency of them indicated an obvious "false positive" and now confirmed above.
    So thanks for taking that one into consideration Cyberhawk Support. I couldn't really announce my issue as such a bug yet because i certainly do keylog myself for local research purposes and took that alert as a valid Cyberhawk interception of it.

    Some other Alerts of keylogging: Notepad, IE, various normal applications. lol
