Newbie writing my own keylogging project.. (c/c++)

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Im wanting to move into the "hacking" scene, purely because I love to learn and I really do find this stuff fascinating...

To start me off, I've decided I want to work on a little project involving a prank on friends etc.. Keylogging. I dont know why I picked this in all honesty, just seemed interesting at the time..

At the moment, im working my way through a c/c++ tutorial, with a little python background, In hope that I can write things like this for myself in future without help.. and basically, I'd just like a few pointers, or tips so-to-speak. Ill start off by saying what it is im trying to create:

.I want to be able to write (with help/pointers, or have a simular project presented to me, so I can read the code and figure out whats happening) a keylogger I send to the victims computer.

.I want the programme to execute itself (hidden) and record input (like a normal logger) and somehow get those results back to me on MY HDD (Email? I dont know how) or atleast be retrievable? (Is the only way of getting these results to gain access to the victims computer?)

If this sounds a little too unrealistic, please do say.. After all, I'm here to learn and learn is what I want to do.. so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading, take care.

If you know some basic C/C++ you can understand what is mostly going on in Irongeeks example. Pick it apart, change the formatting, and use it as an example. While a keylogger really isn't the best first programming project, it works.

If you look around the internet you can find ways to get it to install remotly, run in the background, and start up every time the computer starts up. If you have a USB thumb drive you can also make the keydrive automatically copy the keylogger onto their machine. Irongeeks logger includes an e-mail forwarder of the log, just make sure you configure it right.
