One of the most notorious spyware/malware targets is your keyboard
Keylogger software has been around for ages, a longtime favorite of electronic crooks.
The keylogger does exactly what you’d expect – it logs every key that you type, and then sends that information back to the attacker. How many passwords, account numbers, and other sensitive data do you type on a daily basis?
These are all valuable on the black market.
To protect yourself from these keystroke thieves, use an on-screen keyboard when typing in sensitive passwords, social security numbers of other sensitive data. Your computer will see the on-screen keyboard taps as mouse clicks instead of keyboard input, rendering a malicious keylogger useless.
