    hey wilders,

    hitman pro updated to build 119 yesterday and whille it was updating and also when i tried to scan my computer with hitman pro after it updated, online armor popped up with these three things:

    1. hitman pro is tryng to log keystrokes and capture screenshots on your computer

    2. hitman pro is trying to connect to another computer (very disturbing)

    3. hitman pro is trying to get a list from some microsoft certificate list (not sure of exact wording)

    should i be worried? this has never happened in previous builds of HMP. or are these just False Positive Pop ups from OA.

    any replies would be nice, thanks in advance

    Hi,

    1. Hitman Pro does not log keystrokes or capture screenshots. That's an FP.

    2. Hitman Pro is a cloud scanner, it connects to the internet. It also enumerates network shares to map drive letters to shares. It does not connect to other computers.

    3. Hitman Pro validates authenticode certificates which is part of the behavioral scan. Windows does this too when you try to start a digitally signed file.

    Hope this helps.
