Anti-Keylogger Help

by SlingShotz / May 14, 2007 9:22 AM PDT

I've found this anti-kylogger, not to prevent my parents from seeing what I type, but encrypting each key I typed in any browser so that anyone watching with a Keylogger couldn't see....

I've encountered some errors, not with that program, so I restored my system, I've looked all over this site, but have yet to find it it again...best software for anti-keylogging ever....

It had like a goldish brown/yellow 'K', inside of the box as the toolbar icon, showing you it was running, every key you typed, it showed it being encrypted, but only for the log in page, because I was using the free version....

I would like to purchase this product, having loved it so much, but I can't find it anymore, please someone help me find it....

I barley remember a name, since all of them sound so similar, but I think it was KeyEncrypt or Keyblocker or something, *Not the Elite one*

If some software claims this, you are being ripped. Let me state I will not write a novel telling why.

There are nice free scanners in our Security Forum (see the sticky there) that you can use to detect spyware such as this so use that.

Hope I've saved you some grief and from being ripped off.

1.) The keystroke is not encrypted coming into your computer.
2.) The keystroke cannot be encrypted when it reaches the destination program.

What does that leave? The 'anti-spyware' program can, for a brief second, encrypt the keystroke just to decrypt it again. Before or after any spyware could record it. Ad that's assuming this program is actually encrypting anything in the first place. In short, it's a rip off.

My suggestion: Stick with true antispyware utilities that seek and destroy keyloggers.

Thank you, I guess I'll just empty the thought out of my mind then...

This is the program that you are seeking.

The program that you are looking for is called Keyscrambler. I have posted the link to their home page for you.
I have tested it against two key logger programs on my own PC and it does work. It was recommended by some one knowledgeable in the security section of this forum. It is just one more layer of security on top of programs like Ad Aware, Spy Bot, AVG, Comodo, et al.

Since keyloggers log at the keyboard interface...

This doesn't work. For example we use this product -> http://www.keyghost.com/

This is why such software doesn't work.

thwarts keyloggers by encrypting keystrokes between the kernal class driver and the application driver. i havent seen a keylogger beat it yet. It's free for IE and firefox home users you can download it from download.com look for codefender
