Do you know what iSpy Keylogger is?

iSpy Keylogger is a malicious program that you definitely want to avoid. The threat is highly dangerous as it might steal various information from the user’s computer. It does so by recording user’s keystrokes, chat conversations, etc. According to our researchers, the malware could be spread with infected documents attached in Spam emails.

The bad news is that the threat might be sold on the dark web for anyone, which means with time it may be distributed even more widely. It would seem the cyber criminals can purchase a license to use the malware for only 25-45 US dollars. The cheapest version can be utilized for only a month, while the one for 45 dollars is available for twelve months. Given the application could become more popular, it would be useful to know how the program may enter the system.

Our researchers found out that iSpy Keylogger travels with infected JavaScript or other documents, which could be distributed through Spam emails. If the user opens such attachment, the malware should launch itself and place its data on the computer too. The research shows that the malicious application may drop only one executable file in the %APPDATA% directory. Such files should have random titles, e.g. skypyeupdate.exe, update.exe, filename.exe, and so on.

After the malicious program is installed, it may start stealing user’s data. By capturing your keystrokes, the threat could learn passwords of your banking account, email address, social media accounts, and other. In fact, iSpy Keylogger could even get the passwords that the user chose to save on his browser. To make matters worse, specialists say; it is even capable of stealing license keys of Microsoft, Adobe, and other legitimate software purchased by the user. Besides, as long as the malicious program is installed it can do webcam screenshots, record chat conversations, Skype calls, and so on. Thus, the longer you leave the malware on the computer the more, it can steal from you or spy on you.iSpy Keylogger Removal GuideiSpy Keylogger screenshot
