Threat Details:

Categories:
  • keylogger

Description:
LocalKeyloggerPro installs to the system directory and runs silently in the background. It records all keystrokes without the user's awareness or consent about this. For instance it makes screen shots every few time units. All data will be saved in its program directory and/or will be sent via the internet. It creates Autorun entries in the registry in order to be launched on each Windows startup. LocalKeyloggerPro is able to block applications, also anti spyware applications! There is no real privacy policy given on the product.
