What is a keylogger - Keylogger explained

Today, with the advent of a program called Keylogger it’s just a cakewalk to hack an account. It doesn’t matter whether or not you have physical access to the victim’s computer. Using a keylogger is the easiest way to hack an account. Any one with a basic knowledge of computer can use the keylogger and within few hours you can hack any account.

What is a keylogger?

A keylogger, sometimes called a keystroke logger, keylogger, or system monitor, is a hardware device or small program that monitors each keystroke a user types on a specific computer’s keyboard. Keylogger is the easiest way to hack an account if you have physical access to victim’s computer.

A keylogger program can be installed just in a few seconds and once installed you are only a step away from getting the victim’s password


If you have physical access to the computer of the user that you are targeting, because it is a lot easier if you do. One option you have, that you will hear a lot if you ask this question, and anybody bothers to answer is to use a keylogger. A keylogger is an excellent option, and probably the easiest. There are a lot of keyloggers out there, ranging from hardware keyloggers, to software keyloggers. For this task, you won't need to buy a hardware keylogger, since the only advantage to a hardware one is that you can grab passwords that are given to access a certain local user on the operating system used. There are a lot of software keyloggers out there, and you can feel free to check out www.google.com to look at your options. I will go ahead and toss a couple of keyloggers out to try for those of you who seem allergic to search engines.

Once you have whatever keylogger you are going to use downloaded, just install it onto the computer you are wanting to monitor, and wait till next time they login to their email account. You will then have the password for the account. Another option you have if they use Outlook to access their email account, is to copy the *.dbx files for their Outlook account onto a floppy, and extract the emails at home (the dbx file stores the files stored in each Outlook folder on a given account, meaning the received and sent emails). When you are on the computer of the user you are targeting, look in

C:\Windows\ApplicationData\Identities\{ACblahblahblah}\Microsoft\ OutlookExpress\ and copy all the .dbx files onto a floppy. Then when you take the .dbx files back to your house, use DBXtract to extract the messages from these files. 

Which are the best keylogger now a days?

I have made a detailed post on this topic in my post Which spyware keylogger software to choose,You must prefer reading it

RAT:(Remote administration tool)

Another option you have if you have physical access is to execute a RAT (Remote Administration Tool, you may know these programs as trojans) server on the computer. Of course, you do not have to have physical access to go this route, but it helps. What you must understand is that these tools are known threats, and the popular ones are quickly detected by antivirus software, and thusly taken care of. Even ISPs block incoming/outgoing traffic from the most popular ports used by these programs.
