    I have been using KeyScrambler Pro for several years now. As I use very frequently VeraCrypt, and the Premium version support it, I have been thinking in upgrade to Premium version.

    But, after all this years, Keyscrambler still being a effective way to protect interception for advanced keyloggers?

    Sorry for my poor english.

    Thanks!

    Good question... I have had a valid licence for years, but haven't used it for years too! Will look forward for other responses...

    Long time i didn't use it too (i use HMPA for that :p ) but i guess it is still effective, in my knowledge i didn't see yet any malware/program that uncrypt keystroke or disable its driver.
    To be sure just use a keylogger test tool and see what Keyscrambler does.

    I tested it with the SpyShelter test and it passed. But that is enough? Maybe there is more advanced keyloggers on the web.

    Thanks!

    Good example.

    What I can use to prevent this kind of attack? Let's say that I download a update for an legitim software, but it is infected with some malware that disable KeyScrambler in this way. There is a AE or HIPS that would advise me that something is being changed?

    It should still be effective against message and hook based keyloggers. It won't help against banking trojans.

    Smartscreen, Windows Defender, AV , AE, HIPS, BB will alert. keyscrambler is not so much used, so a malware targeting it is as rare.

    Does KeyScrambler protects against form-grabber keyloggers, javascript-based keyloggers, browser add-on/extension keyloggers and web-based keyloggers?

    Thanks

    It protects against hook and message based keyloggers. Can you give an example of malware that uses the methods that you mentioned?
