I not aware of any security issues associated with d/l managers other
than spyware.  According to http://www.tom-cat.com/spybase/ , Getright
v4.5+ is clear of any spyware although previous versions contained it.
To be sure you should scan with ad-aware and spybot s&d - use google.

Hope this helps,

Just wondering on thoughts about download managers- do they pose are
security risk? Any known to be trojaned? The one I use is GetRight, does
anyone know if this one has known security issues?

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks.
