RE: keyloggers

Keyloggers are very easy to code in a matter of minutes, and most of these home made keyloggers will not set off any 
alarms on most antivirus packages as they are usually signature based. Spyware applications seem to have a better catch 
rate but they are still not %100.

It seems there's a trend about antivirus software detect and remove 
keyloggers and spywares. Actually, I think antispy programs can do this job 
more effectively.

Yes. Some keyloggers gets a small square bitmap around the mouse cursor and
saves to the log. I think the on-screen keyboard is vulnerable to this kind
of keyloggers.

Usually, anti-spy programs can detect and remove many keyloggers. Look for
SpyBot Search&Destroy at www.safer-networking.org. It's a good one.
