I am using Comodo Firewall. Comodo not only notifies me when programs attempt to make connections to the internet, it also notifies me when they try to do things like access my keyboard, which is apparently a favorite trick of keyloggers.
Whenever I choose to open an existing file, or attempt to load a character from the Armory, I receive this alert from Comodo: "Rawr is trying to access the keyboard directly." It then gives me the option to allow or block this behavior.
I have always chosen to block it.
Despite blocking this behavior, I am still able to open files and load characters from the Armory. Therefore, I conclude that this sudden need to access my keyboard isn't necessary to the operation of the program. I honestly can't figure what
on earth Rawr needs to do with my keyboard that isn't served by the dialog box widgets themselves. Any ideas?
Another interesting Comodo alert: Rawr attempts to install a global hook to C:\Windows\system32\explorerframe.dll. Yet another one that I deny, and yet another one that doesn't seem to be necessary to the functioning of the program.
Do we have a malware author hiding somewhere in our open source community? That sounds more sensationalist than I meant it to, sorry. I don't know who gets to touch the source code of Rawr.
