View Full Version : Keystroke logging & reporting



06-03-2002, 05:41 PM
If for,example,a virus installed a keystroke logging program on my machine and reported home, what would it be able to make of a Copy & Paste action of a password? Would it just record a Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V or would the characters be recorded? What would be recorded using the mouse to do this?
I look forward to any ideas on this.

Keyloggers capture all typed keystrokes and some advanced ones can capture visited websites URLs, open windows etc...

It really depends on how the program works. It may log all your clipboard contents too so copy and paste will not work.
