Want to know what’s going on behind the scenes with your desktop at work whenever you leave the office? The Spy Keylogger ought to come in handy, featuring 2MB of internal memory to store all the keystrokes made whenever you’re not around. Of course, it works with most wired keyboards, so those who are using wireless keyboards will be able to get away scot free. With devices like these getting more and more commonplace, we would recommend you check out the back of your desktop the moment you clock in for work just in case someone is snooping around your office activity, trying to garner a password or two from you in the process.
These keyloggers act as the “man-in-the-middle,” monitoring each keystroke as it flies down your cable into your computer. You notice nothing, since every key you type gets dutifully reproduced on your screen. Somewhere, however, you’ve got a sneaky person quietly recording everything, just waiting for you to step away for a few minutes so they can retrieve the offending device and play back everything. The logger saves every keystroke into onboard memory. To read the contents, remove the logger and connect it to your own computer and keyboard. Typing in a password into any text-editor begins the memory-dump process.
Available in USB or PS/2 interface models, the Spy Keylogger will retail for $59.99 and $74.99, respectively.
