FBI pulls plug on the flood of Coreflood virus

Unfortunately computers and viruses go hand in hand, it does not seem to matter how much we try to defeat the digital bugs, they always seem to find a way on to our computers. There has been a major breakthrough in the fight against digital terrorism as recently though as the FBI launched a massive campaign to rid the world of the virus known as Coreflood.

What is Coreflood?

Coreflood is a nasty little virus known as a key-logger. Once Coreflood in on a computer, the hacker can dial in to your computer remotely and can track every single key that the user has pressed. What can this be used for? Well lets say the hacker is watching your computer and you browse your to online bank account, the hacker could then log the keys you pressed as you logged into your account, which means he would then have access to your bank account and your funds.

How To Remove A Key Logger?

My fiancée installed a key logger on my computer.  Not only is she reading all of my Skype conversations, but she’s also logging in and reading my emails.  Now she thinks I’ve got something going on with an old friend from high school.

(All this, despite the fact that this old girlfriend now lives in Israel).  She is spying on me.  My questions… is what she’s doing legal? Also, how do I remove this key logger and make sure it won’t be put back on my computer?


James, our question to you is, if you’re not married, and she already doesn’t trust you, how will your marriage go?

(Sorry to say this right before Christmas, but someone has to tell you.)

Have you given her reason in the past to remove the trust one normally places in their fiancée?

Trust plays a key role in all relationships.  While we’re not here to offer you relationship or legal advice, you should be aware that either your fiancée has serious insecurity issues (which already put your relationship in jeopardy), or you’ve given her reason to remove trust she previously placed in you (i.e. you cheated).

Either way, we advise you (as no more than an online friend) to closely look at your relationship, find out where the key trust issues lie, and address them, or evaluate if this is a relationship you want to continue.

Remember, you’re not married yet, and installing a key logger on your computer to monitor your activities suggests your marriage could already be in trouble…

Back to your key logger questions

Is spying on someone else using a key logger legal?

We’re not attorneys, and none of what we’re about to say should be construed as professional legal advice or a substitute for an attorney.

That said, it’s not legal if a key logger is installed on your computer by someone else, and you don’t know about it in advance.

However, whether or not it’s legal to use a key logger on your own computer, when someone else is using your computer, becomes a little more fuzzy on legal grounds.  There are arguments for both sides which have won out in court.

Was she using a key logger on her computer, which you were using?  It doesn’t sound like it.  If she installed this key logger on your computer (without you knowing about it in advance), then chances are good she’s actually done something illegal.

But do you really want to report your fiancée to the police for something she’s done to your computer?

How you deal with the key issues at play in your relationship here is up to you.  But it’s clear something deeper is going on.  Regardless, you probably want to remove this software.

Downloading free keylogger software: Are keyloggers illegal?

Hey Identity Theft Secrets,

My friends and I were having a debate about whether or not it’s legal to download and run a keylogger software on your own computer  I know it’s illegal to keylog if you’re doing it on someone else’s computer, but what about using a keylogger to track what someone else does on your computer? Are keyloggers illegal if they’re being used on your own computer?

Well, before we get into answering what is legal and what’s not when it comes to keyloggers, let’s talk about what keyloggers are and what they do.

Keylogging software  (AKA “a keylogger”) works in the background to silently record whatever’s happening on a computer.  Depending on which  keylogger you download, you’ll get varying degrees of information.  Some of the more robust keyloggers will track more than just keystrokes.  They can also track all text typed in chat conversations, the chat program used, websites visited and what words were typed in on those websites, what has been printed, what files have been uploaded or downloaded from the internet, what files on the computer have been shared, changed, accessed, and a lot more information.

There is a millisecond difference that you barely notice between you hitting a key and the character actually appearing on your computer screen. Generally speaking, keyloggers sit in that free space between when you hit keystrokes and when those letters/characters appear on your computer screen.

Before the key you typed is visible on your screen, the keylogging program has tracked what key was pressed and tied it in with a snapshot of whatever is taking place on the computer at the time the key is pressed.

The recorded keys are then sent along into a recording (or “log”) of keys, and strung together to create something which will make sense to the person who installed the keylogger on the computer.

Because there is so little time (fractions of seconds) involved in that process, it becomes difficult for an end user to spot keylogging software when it’s in use on a computer.

So, is it illegal to download and install keylogger software?

The answer is No.

That is to say, keylogging and keylogger software is legal.

There are some very legitimate reasons for keyloggers and keylogging software, which we’ll cover in our next article.

For now, if you’d like to download keylogging software on a free trial basis, we recommend checking out All In One Keylogging Software.
