Question

Viruses and Spyware

Hypothetically, if a child's friend was able to download or upload a keylogger programme onto your computer, do these programmes have the capability to travel with e mails and pictures sent from the computer, for example, if a picture that was sent out was shared further with others, would the keylogger know every place that picture was sent and shared?

Thanks.

No.

Let's clarify that a keylogger does one thing. Now to get the information you asked about I would take the results from the keylogger and extract that information.

Let's not confuse what a keylogger does from how we use the logged information.

newbie8: A Request

Hi newbie8..

It would be greatly appreciated, if you continue to post in the thread you initially created.

This one: http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6132_102-602039/virus-and-spyware/

If it's an entirely different subject, it's not a problem. But since the above thread is also related to your keylogger issue/s, I'm going to lock one.

Thanks in advance for your understanding..

Carol
