New realtime Anti-Keylogger feature?
« on: August 31, 2010, 12:53:30 AM »

Hi there!

Avast Antivirus is an extraordinary program. And good looking, too!  :D

But it still has some flaws which are preventing it to be perfect: it doesn't have a realtime Anti-Keylogger feature, for example.

I say this, because I have come across a stolen password problem from my Gmail accounts and the only way to stop it, seemed to be the use of three security programs:

- KeyScrambler Personal, from QFX Software (http://www.qfxsoftware.com/download.htm);

- SpyShelter Personal Free, from SpyShelter (http://www.spyshelter.com/download.html);

- RoboForm Free, from Siber Systems (http://www.roboform.com/download).

The ideal thing would be ALWIL to team-up with these companies or come-up with similar proprietary solutions.

THEN Avast would REALLY rock the cyberspace...

Thank you in advance and please, feel free to discuss this further.

LG

avast detect (should detect) keyloggers as malware (or, at least, potential unwanted programs).
Are you sure your Gmail account passwords were stolen locally in your computer?
Which keylogger did avast miss the detection?

Hi cyber.digitalis, welcome to the forum :)

Avast is developing a new feature called " Secure Desktop " that will protect you against malware including keyloggers, even when you are infected. But as far I know it will only be available in Avast Pro and - IS.

Sounds good, do you have any more information about this new feature?
