Video: Keyloggers 101

| October 30, 2011

The Ethical Hacker Network TV LogoKeyloggers are usually one of the top picks for a hacker or a spy’s best friend. They basically serve as the eyes and ears of the attacker. They can be based on software or hardware and send detailed reports including the user’s passwords, chat logs, all typed text, launched applications and visited websites. They can even send screenshots to visually show what the user was viewing as well as any webcam and microphone activity.
