Question, suspicion of a keylogger
« on: August 30, 2021, 12:59 PM »
Good day, i want to make a post here because i have the suspicion theres a keylogger in my computer, lately many of my accounts  have been under attack by people trying to log in to them, trying to change the security questions/e-mails, etc, some of them repeatedly and i cannot know for certain wether its because of security vulnerabilities in the sites im using, someone bruteforcing passwords and succeeding to get into my accounts or if i just have a keylogger or something similar thats handing my passwords to a hacker. i figured since this is a software forum, there would be people able to help

so far ive been attacked in videogame service accounts, windows accounts, appleID accounts
is there a trusted software to stop this from happening? how do i even make sure of what the problem IS?
My free antivirus (Avast) doesnt detect anything out of the ordinary

This smells like spam to me. But on the chance it's not:

1. Make sure you're not using the same username/email/password combo on all your accounts. Use a good password manager to generate strong, unique passwords for each of your accounts.
2. Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) so that even if someone has your login details, they can't login without the time-based code (sometimes called TOTP or one-time code).
3. Check https://haveibeenpwned.com/ to see if various sites where you have an account have been breached.

Hmmm, spam about a key logger.  Are they talking about that key you need to get the spam out of the can, or ...   8)

"Almost all modern AV (with BB or HIPS) protect against keyloggers"
"I no longer use any Anti-Keylogger since they all had it's issues and I don't have much money."
"Anti-loggers were popular when HIPS and BB were too complicated for basic users, now that BB are everywhere and easy to use, Anti-loggers started to die."
