[Security Guide] Keyloggers

Recommended Posts

You'd be surprised how many people in 2018 don't know about keyloggers. I had this guide laying around, decided to post it.
 
Contents:
 
    Introduction
    What is a Keylogger and what does it do?
    How you can get keylogged?
    How to stay safe from getting keylogged.
    How to remove any keyloggers you may have.
 

Key:
 
    Hacker - A hacker is a person who uses computers to gain unauthorized access to data.
    Noob - In this case, A noob is a person that is not good at using computers.
    Thread - A Thread is a post on a forum, Such as this one.
    exe file - An exe file, A program on your computer.
 

Introduction:
This is a warning to anyone out there It is very easy to get keylogged. I am writing this thread so less people get hacked on Runescape aswell as to make this community more safe.
 
Although this guide is mainly for RuneScape keyloggers, It will teach you how to be careful when downloading files that may contain a virus. I have tried to make this thread understandable for everyone, Noob or computer literate. Please leave your feedback or any questions in a reply below.
 
What is a keylogger?:
A keylogger is something that hackers use to see every key you press on your keyboard, Most the time keyloggers let's the hacker look at your screen, Webcam and can even record your voice(All of this being if it's a RAT). So it can be scary stuff!
 
How you can get keylogged?:
A hacker can keylog you very easy if you are not careful! Most hackers make a exe file and get other people to download it, Who ever downloaded the exe file and runs the program, Will get keylogged. Don't worry not every exe file has a keylogger though.
 
That's not the only way! The hacker can also make a keylogger in Pictures, videos and everything else between. Hackers have became more advanced in making keyloggers by using java, Meaning the hacker sends you to a website. When you open the website a message will come up with "The application's digital signature cannot be verified do you want to run the application?", By choosing to run you can be keylogged.
 
How to stay safe:
Now you know hackers can keylog you that easy, Be very careful downloading any file. If you are not sure if its safe, use a search engine such as Google. But don't forgot hackers can also hack into trusted files and attach a keylogger but this normally gets fixed quick depending on the file or website.
 
Sorry to break it to you if you didn't already know, You can not hack RuneScape in anyway unless you are very very experienced and are at full disposed for a multi-million dollar lawsuit , This means you can't hack Stat's, Money, Or even the RuneScape website. Any program that claims it can hack into RuneScape is 99.9% fake and will definitely have a virus or a keylogger, Download them at your own risk.
 
The reason you can not hack RuneScape is, All your Stats, Money and Items are saved in the RuneScape server into files, for each account there is a file. Which means to change anything on your account your have to go to where all the RuneScape account files are, Good luck finding the files though!
 
How to remove keyloggers?:
It can be hard to delete keyloggers as the exe file once opened can put the keylogger onto other files, Even important ones! Sometimes the exe you downloaded is nearly impossible to delete, This can be very annoying. I suggest you download a good anti-virus protector, I use Avast as it is very cheap and updated often, It removes most to all viruses or keyloggers you may have. You can get a free trail.
 
If you deeply believe if you a rat or a keylogger in your system and want to make sure, simply pm me and i'll setup a checkup and ensure your safety. :)
 
If you have any other suggestions about guides I should make, please comment below.

Everytime I've thought I had a keylogger I'd just factory reset my pc. Very difficult to catch.

Gotta keep those pixels safe ;)

Great guide, glad we have another person in the community that cares about cyber security.
