    As noted by author removing ID entirely would be even better solution.

    I don't think it was Kasperksy's intention. But that's why it's best not to mess around with URL scanning done by AV's or even extensions.

    Agreed. I doubt this was intentional. There's also money to be made selling security software which as I have stated in the past you will not get if nobody trusts your product.

    I heard a bug in Kaspersky products could be used for spying. Is that true?
