    Caution when posting diagnostic logs from your computer

      Whilst running diagnostic tools on your system and submitting logs in security/malware detection forums, you may run the risk of submitting your personal email address.

      A tool like Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) will produce a logfile containing your personal email address.


      Farbar definitely is not to blame...


      Instead it lookss like Adobe has added user's email address to a Windows task....

      From what I understand, this is very exceptional.


      Posting FRST logfiles for investigating by experts is a regular thing, so I felt it worthwhile reporting here.
