    I have Snadboy's Revelation installed on my system-for those who don't know about it, it reveals passwords hidden behind asterisks..
    I wanted to know whether I'm at any risk to keep it installed on my system..antiviruses detect it..maybe hidden spyware / trojans ?

    I don't see it as a risk, but if it worries you then maybe you should write down your passwords somewhere and remove it from your pc.

    It's not a risk, it can be a handy thing to have access to at times. A/V software often flags it as 'dangerous' though.

    I'd not keep it installed. Who knows what info it's reporting back? No thanks.

    I don't think it's reporting anything back, but you can always use some kind of monitoring software to be sure.
