    All 3 keylogging methods are covered in the next version of AppDefend. The screen capturing aspect isn't yet. I'm not sure if there is a viable solution for that given that many apps could capture the screen themselves to achieve various visual effects.

    I have the impression that Snoopfree does monitor and prompts block/allow for that.

    Forget it, snoop free may cover 2 keylogg/screen methods, aak is still at the top of all anti-keylogger it covers 3 methods of akltester. To catch direct input you could use various hips a.s.o.. if you use Outpost you don´t have to worry.

    I'm not saying one should use it. I'm saying Snoopfree can do that. I don't use it, i just tried it briefly.
    I don't even boot XP these days :D

    But now i see that's not what Jason was saying, he was referring to false alarms :doubt:

    The keylogging methods I talked about are in the current version of AppDefend just for what it's worth. When I get some free time I would like to see how reliable the other anti keyloggers are as it's a bit open to implementation as to how best to do it. I suspect some may do it in a way which makes false positives occur more often.

    You are now a linux junkie, hm, I still prefer windows it may be more devilish but more interesting too and much more software.

    Not really, I have found the opposite to be true in many cases. It just depends on the genre of the software you are talking about. It has actually left me becoming very disappointed whenever I have to go on a Windows computer since much of my favorite software is not available to use, unless through some sort of emulation which makes things quite slow.

    Cheers,

    Other than "what's that got to do with anything", and "hey, AppDefend fails NEW Anti-Keylogger Tester", i got "you can read about it to understand, or not, i don't give a damn". ;)

    Gentlemen, we are in the Official Ghost Security Forum. AppDefend is a program for Windows.

    Those wishing to discuss Linux variations of software should start a thread elsewhere in the forums.
