Those who have the program updated to its latest version (7,25 I believe) should get rid of it immediately for it has a security flaw the size of a house that would basically cause it to open at random during the day and to log you in even if you don't want it to and even if you have it set up so it doesn't do any such things.

At first I thought that I had a virus or something, but after a quick Google search I stumbled across this topic from the official forums where people are complaining like crazy about said issue.

Trust me, even if your computer can handle that beast sucking up your memory (mine certainly can't), there's no reason for this to happen. I recommend using alternatives if you actually need it to work or whatever (the Android version seems to be fine, though).

Thank you very much for the warning, Dragon! I've gone and uninstalled it just in case.

Take no chances with this thing.

I did you one better. I never installed it.
