Glad you mentioned that Andy as I had Kaspersky throw up a potential threat in Photoshop as well. At first I was going to dismiss it but on following the link that was shown which leads to the Kaspersky database it actually pointed out that this was a pretty severe security threat and recommended updating the file. After several hours searching through what passes for an Adobe web site I managed to locate the file (a DLL as it happens) which to all intents and purposes appeared to be the same. So I fired off an email to Adobe queering this threat and asking if Kaspersky was throwing up a false positive as OldBoy has indicated and was advised that although both files appeared the same they were in fact different. Anyway, to cut a long story short after substituting the said DLL file and following another scan Kaspersky passed it as clear.
I post this as perhaps a warning to others - don't always be fooled into thinking something is a false positive simply because you trust the programme. Check and double-check it first queering the vendor of the application like I did if necessary.
