What a coincidence - I also added a similar list to my website yesterday :) - which I had been working on for a few days previously to get permission to use peoples pictures etc

However your list seems to have a few more links that I have on mine so I hope you don’t mind if I kind of borrow some of them!

A similar site to www.futurehorizons.net I found a couple of years ago was http://www.amazing1.com/

Hmm... it honestly was coincidence... I have been going back thorugh old bookmarks recently, and have been posting a few each day.

By all means, help yourself to any information you find here!

I considered getting one of these a while back. I assume that there is a TSR that must be running, and therefore can be detected by anyone looking in the TASK MANAGER or in the services. This poses a potential problem. :(

Physically, it looks like a simple converter, and is virtually undetectable. And even if someone did find it, they wouldn't know how to use it.

From how I understand it these things are completely hardware, you just plug it in between the keyboard, and the socket on the motherboard, and it will log all your keystrokes. (it simply reads the raw output down the wire from the keyboard to the computer which it stores on its internal memory - there is no software loaded onto the computer etc)

(if your thinking of getting one, I’d advise you to look around as I’ve seen places that sell better models, ie more memory for less)

If there is no software, how does it get triggered when the password is entered? Something has to be "listening" for that password.

And yeah, I would do some price searching before I bought one.

I think it just logs all keystrokes - there is no password only capture mode.

According to that site above...

You can take it off the computer it is on to examine the data on another computer or perform the audit from that computer. Enter into a text program, such as Wordpad, Notepad, Edit, or any other program which allows you space to enter text freely and edit it. Type the passphrase which was set, first time users the passphrase is 'keykatch' the menu will be displayed, you can navigate through the menus by entering typing in the number coresponding with the command.

Anyway, I will do the true research when i decide to buy one.

No software required, the little device is hardware, it logs to EEPROM stuff and doesnt forget when unplugged. It works like this, it listens to everything like a filter, and lets everything go through but logs it. It cant see what someone else says to you, it only knows which keys you type.

Because it listens, it listens for information (aka the password) upon finding the password it spits out a menu, by emulating keystrokes, pushing it out to the computer as if it were the keyboard. when you trigger the menu your communicating with the device :P

Now THAT makes sense. IT emulates the keyboard to present the menu when it "sees" the passkey come on. :)

Hey Jack! You gotta register! You have a huge thread going here already! :) Come join the fun! :)
