Re: Stay Alert

This doesn't go against the forum rules sinces 1) this is no computer virus 2) keyloggers aren't necessarily bad, it's perfectly okay for someone who has the rights to do so to monitor his own network. Only abuse can be considered bad.
To answer your question: a few years ago (well we're talking about ten years ago, I guess I'm getting older lol) I also wrote a keylogger and tested it against various antivirus software. All tests returned negative, and this was to be expected since most antivirus programs check for computer viruses' signatures. In the case of a keylogger that you write yourself, the code is custom-made and therefore there's no such "signature". Despite this, some antiviruses can detect freshly written malicious scripts if these call a certain sequence of instructions (such as the typical code of encryption engines of polymorphic viruses) or by using heuristic methods (analyzing the behaviour of your program when isolated within a sandbox along with other harmless files).
Of course, most people are unaware of this fact and believe that they are well-protected by their basic antrivirus software.

Well nowadays what happens is because that linked to the keyboard buffer, and took information belonging to other processes that should set up the traffic lights on the scanners from experience with bitdefender.
