Does Avast stop keystroke loggers?
« on: March 08, 2013, 08:48:55 AM »
My Yahoo password was recently cracked.
Would like to know how this was done.
Could there be a keystroke logger on my computer, or
does Avast! prevent that with 100% confidence?

What firewall are you using? Online Armor contains keylogger protection.
