Any computer geeks who can help me with this one?
I recently discovered a nasty piece of software on my PC. It's a keystroke logger. Now, I'm not a computer genius, but by definition, what this little thing does is makes a file of all your typed content and sends it to the party who installed it.
To my knowledge, keystroke loggers don't float around the electronic universe as do adware packets and such. Someone has to physically - either by direct or stealth means - install the software, for the purpose of looking at what you do on your PC.
This software can and does forward all keystroke information including logins and such.
So much for banking security.
So much for private email.
...and what about Identity Theft?
