Keylogger VS Sticky Password 6

Post by xbonize » Tue May 22, 2012 6:00 pm

Hello,

Does Sticky Password 6 has a protection against clipboard monitors? My friend told me that keylogger was able to log the clipboard when I paste any text from the Clipboard. That means keylogger is able to log the clipboard when I double click on a field of the password list (and password generator too) to copy its value to the Windows clipboard.

Hello,

sure, you just have to turn on the feature in Settings - General Settings - Ask before pasting password from clipboard.
Or you can use our Virtual Keyboard - that is the best protection against keyloggers.

Yes, I've turn it on. It will ask for confirmation like this:
"Do you want to allow your password to be pasted from the clipboard?"

..and then I click on YES to paste that password. But the keylogger can still log my password right?

Hi,

Can you give an explanation about this protection against clipboard monitors?

Keylogger will only see "CTRL+V", so it will not log your password. If it will try to access clipboard, it will get value "[Sticky Password Protector]"

I try with keylogger, and it's actually works ok :)
Unfortunately, working only with "Sticky Password Generator", not with plain copy/paste passwords from .text file.

Btw, with keylogger I try it, he not grab value "[Sticky Password Protector]", just simple "v".

And you should not advertise your self with "[Sticky Password Protector]" in keyloggers logs, because you gonna be bypassed very soon. Be silent ;)

As far as I know, keylogger can only log the keystrokes typed on the keyboard. It can't record the content in the clipboard.

Keylogger can track and capture all the content in the Windows Clipboard, if a user use hotkey CTRL+C, CTRL+V or select the copy/paste command from the system menu. It will directly record all the content of user copied.

Yes, keylogger can not only record all the keystrokes typed on the keyboard, but also can record the hotkey information.

By using our Virtual Keyboard, it can not record anything.

Completely agree! my mom install a keylogger (this one:http://www.anykeylogger.com) on my PC, because I often forget to turn on clipboard protection, now I am used to use virtual keyboard when I typed important password. :lol:

The Spia keylogger in one of its functions is the screenshot when the mouse is clicked so even using the virtual keyboard this keylogger can record what was typed. If you want to test the following link http://spiasoftware.com/spia

Hi,

the virtual keyboard has an anti-spy protection, which would display multiple fake mouse cursors across the virtual keyboard, thus making impossible to see even with a screenshot, which button was clicked on.
