Thread: Danger -- KATE Users -- Danger

    Default Danger -- KATE Users -- Danger
    Warning: Users of KATE (v 2.0)

    Today, my trail license of KATE was set to expire (and I can not justify $45 on an app that has 1 useful task.. 5 icon dock)

    So I went into the settings, and saw a new expiration date of 1/28/2011 and a rather weird crucifix Cross icon.

    Hmm, I thought, must be an extension for the Beta, with all the issues people are seeing...

    WRONG!
    As soon as I re-sprung my phone, Bam!
    ALL my app icons are Randomly re-arranged!

    Not just on a single page, but ALL icons on all Pages moved from page to page randomly.

    Thanks for that Mal-ware KATE!

    Now I must re-arrange all 80 icons, as KATE saw fit to completely destroy my prior layout.

    Maybe someone with real programming skills should offer to work for those Kate jokers...

    Later!

    I didn't know Kate was malware...I'm running Kate and I noticed all my icons rearranged after installing too!

    What exacly does this malware do and do I have to restore?

    I'm lovin my 5 dock and dock reflections. I'd rather not go through the hassle of restoring if I don't have to...

    The crucifix is the only part that worries me- otherwise I'd just blame it on being beta software.

    hardly worth calling a "danger". back when I had Windows, it happened all the time.
    I'm so glad I don't have to meet The Internet People.
