Anti-Keylogger

Recommended Posts

Guest quasicartes

I had trojans installed in my comp after visiting some sites. The site asks for my passwords to online accounts, so I suspect that the trojan installed on my comp has a keylogger in it. Does anybody know a good keylogger remover?

Thanks.

I have Spy-Bot, Adware and SpyDoctor.

I also use Mozilla and had the Windows XP firewall on, still I got the trojans in the system. McAfee Anti-Virus had already deleted the 2 trojans. But, I still need an anti-keylogger just to make sure.

Both Spy-Bot and Ad-aware finds them.

Do you have Sp2 installed on your win? sp1 firewall worths nothing.

I don't think sp1 has any firewall in it.

I have sp2. I use mozilla (pop-up disabled, ActiveX disabled, highest security possible).

My windows XP professional, anti-virus, anti-spywares and all other relevant programs are always updated daily.

I wasn't even surfing porn. Just some chat links on MSN.

Yet, the Trojan manage to infiltrate my system.

Time to buy a Mac.

Don't make a decision you will regret through the rest of your life!

Only one more suggestion, dump McAfee and use Avast!.

It has a web filter feature, designed exactly to prevent these types of attacks. The browser accesses the net through Avast!, and so it can recognise trojans still on the webpage and prevent them from downloading on your comp.

btw just because they are on your comp, that doesn't mean that they are capable of working. A good firewall can stop them from sending data out.

ps:sp1 had a firewall in it.

Is a Mac that bad?

I can't answer in full honesty. El Guardo is about 8cm taller than me, and he knows my email address. :)

But seriously, don't believe the marketing. You won't find an OS better than XP.

But, if you want change, than instead of buying a Mac, why don't you switch to Linux?

You already have the hardware, buying only Linux is much cheaper. You can even find free ones.

Linus is not Trojan or Virus proof. It's also difficult for non-genius to use that.

Nothing is safe from attacks. The only safe way is to unplug the internet.

There are Linux OS-es that are really user-friendly. Not at the level of XP, but you see a nice graphical interface before your eyes. You don't need to learn special commands and type them in anymore. Suse Linux is a good example.

Besides, you can KEEP your Win AND try Linux. You just create another partition, install Linux there and at boot time you choose which OS you want to use.

Choose Linux if you want to surf the web, choose win for everything else.

The thing is I still don't understand how I got it.

I click on link, then waited for the page to load. (There is no .exe or any other extension visible) The page took a long-time to load. So, close that window. Not long after, I stopped surfing altogether.

But, my connection is still active, so I did a virus-scan and discovered I got trojans.

Did that page load Java? In the background maybe? I guess it did.

Surprisingly, it's exactly like a usual, boring log-in page. No Java noticeable.

I was asked to enter my online gaming account username and password.

It said it needed to access to my account to tinker it, so that I can have more gaming points. I knew straight away it's some stupid hacker's work. I thought these guys are script kiddies, but they are much more advanced. They got the trojans into my system in the most inconspicuous manner.

@Blade: Thanks very much. But, I havee Avant already. Adaware full version doesn't do much right? :huh:

Not all trojans launch as soon as they download into your system, so you could have possibly gotten it from anywhere, and it just happened to activate then.

nyc_rocks is right though, safe surfing habits, which you don't seem to possess just by looking at all of the spyware threads you have started. :p

As for an Anti-Keylogger, I haven't got a clue. Sometimes your system just needs a good cleaning, what better time than just after you get it infected.

Edit: I could swear there were more threads you posted about spyware, Guess I must have just been thinking about a single one, :rolleyes:

You mean this, Capt Snow?

I wouldn't give a nickel dime about safety surfing habits if I am using Mac. <_< My surfing habit is relatively acceptable. I don't download much. My downloads are limited for South Park episodes (BITtorrent or direct download) and a few

music album (eMule) and occasionally a few softwares from download.com

Porn sites are very seldom visited, if ever.

I use only Yahoo! mail.

Plus, with my crappy download limit (10GB/month), I can't download much :(

Yeah, that was the thread I was looking for I think. :)

I just reread my previous post, and it could have come off as me being a prick. :/ That's not how I meant it to come out if that is how you understood it. Just trying to poke a little fun ;) And wanted to make sure it wasn't misunderstood.

Ummm.... Most of those things you listed downloading from are usually pretty safe, so as you mentioned, it must have been that one site you went to.

I haven't had to deal with key-logging, so I really have no suggestions. But someone around here has to have something helpful, Hopefully.

On another note, I can't believe you have a download limit :o I don't know what the hell I would do If I had a limit, I mean I just downloaded about 4 gb worth of junk last night, I would run through that limit in 2 1/2 days :laugh:
