Security Terms

Keylogger

A program or hardware component that surreptitiously monitors and stores all the strokes typed into a keyboard. Some keylogger programs will also forward the stored information to an external server for easier retrieval by the attacker.

Keylogger programs may be dropped on a system by other malware, or may be manually installed by the attacker; keylogger hardware must be manually installed. Similarly, keylogger programs will allow an attacker to remotely retrieve the stored information, whereas keylogger hardware must be physically retrieved in order to access the information saved on the device.
