KeyLogger detection.....kldetector
« on: March 13, 2009, 03:50:33 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

This keylogger detector: http://dewasoft.com/privacy/kldetector.htm could point you to keyloggers on your system, study the report it gives you. I hope no keylogger has been detected....

Hi Polonus,I have just visited this site and I am sure you do not know but WOT gives this site a bad rating.Quote."Appeared on list of malware distributors".I do not know if WOT is right or not and I do not want to check this site out.I just thought you would like to know. :-\.

Personally I thing this a bag of boll**** if you do some further digging, in the area mentioned MalwareDomain List, http://www.malwaredomainlist.com/mdl.php?search=dewasoft.com&colsearch=All, see image extract below. It is reporting a keylogger, so guess what a tool to find keyloggers is likely to be considered by some as a keylogger itself, e.g. a tool getting tarred with the same brush as whet it tries to combat ;D

I think that what the fuss about it is that a KeyLogger can be used for both bad purposes as well as good and if the KeyLogger is used it can gain access to financial or private information. 

I view KeyLoggers just a tad above malware as they both strive to gain access to a person's system behind their back at least for snooping at what a person is doing or at worst nefarious usage.

My view too, but this isn't a keylogger but a detector of keyloggers.

The confused icon is very apt as I'm totally confused, I don't understand what you are trying to say.

The topic is about a tool that can detect if a keylogger is present on your system, it isn't a keylogger. MBAM detects malware but that isn't malware, no egg or chicken issues there either. The same is true of this 'tool' it can't hatch into anything else other than a tool to detect the presence of keyloggers.

Keyloggers are in over 99% of the times used illegally. Most can send the logs to the one who installed it. They are detected by anti-malware applications like avast as wel as many firewalls. Ofcourse you do need to setup your security properly.

Yes, but we aren't talking about keyloggers as such in this topic, but a tool to detect if there is a keylogger present on your system.

Hi bob3160,

It is a question of what came first the chicken or the egg. Some say the egg (evolutionists) and some say the chicken (creationists), whereas in some States of America they would bet it was "the rooster" (interventionists).
So I also tend to say the rooster for I do not belong to evolutionists nor creationists, but I am an interventionist. And while keyloggers intervene.....keylogger detection is not an easy thing to do. Sometimes it is like searching for the proverbial needle in the haystack! I have a 34 pages report now with what files my kl-detector found/checked on my computer for chances, it is nice for analysis tool whenever a PC is accessed by manifold users, but also for plain analysis of activities,
