Do you know how they hacked your account? Part five: Keylogging

Keylogging  (also called keystroke logging) is a method that cyber criminals use to record (or log) the keys you strike on your keyboard in order to get confidential information about you.
Of course they do this in a concealed manner, so that you won’t know you are being monitored while typing passwords, addresses and other secret data on your keyboard as usual.

Keyloggers are usually used with malicious intentions, to steal passwords or credit card information.
Although many anti-spyware applications can detect some software based keyloggers and quarantine, disable or cleanse them, there is no solution that can claim to be 100% effective against this type of threat.
