From time to time, I am seeing a ZAP Security Alert for SUSPICIOUS BEHAVIOR that I always Deny.
The warning states:
"Internet Explorer is attempting to monitor user activity on this computer.
If allowed it may try to track or log keystrokes (user input), mouse movements/clicks, web sites visited, and other user behaviors.
Allow or Deny".
In addition, the SmartDefense Advisor Technical Info for the OSFirewall Alert refers to the Sub Event Type as "ExecutionGlobalWindowsHook", explaining that "Internet Explorer attempted to set a Windows hook without a specific thread".
In ZAP Program Control I have IE Trust Level set to Ask, Access toTrusted and Internet Zone
is Allowed, Server rights for Trusted and Internet Zone set to Ask.
As I stated, I always Deny this behavior, and my browser does not malfunction in any way.
On one hand, it really gives me cause for concern, but on another level, I think
it might just be the OSFirewall reacting to IE7.0 and the settings I have.
I'm at a loss.
All security apps show clean scans.
I checked the MD5 hash of IE7 and it is okay.
Perhaps some Gurus here can suggest to me
what the heck is going on?
