Is keyscrambler susceptible to screenshots?
As far as I know it only protects against keystroke logging but would not protect against clipboard, screen or video/audio logging.
ty for reply,
but im currently running keyscrambler, and KIS2012, would this be enough protection against screenshot, audio, and clipboard keyloggers?
kis should be more than enough for all those......
KIS can detect some types of loggers using signatures and HIPS module and by this way can protect us...but KeyScrambler works differently - it encrypt all typed keystrokes and by this way all signals are useless for key-loggers.
I don't think that KIS can be use instead of KS...both apps are complementary.
KIS will attempt to stop a keylogger from getting in, KeyScrambler really only serves a purpose if one has already gotten in. They are both effective at what they do, and you should be reasonably safe if you have them both installed (nothing catches everything).
wow was looking for a forum like this 1 for a long time...
... but sometimes I get the encrypted signs in the firefox address bar That's really annoying, how can I report it to the developer?
I'm going to go out on a limb here... maybe email the developer? http://www.qfxsoftware.com/about/contact.htm
I emailed them before and got no reply
I get that from time to time as well. I believe it is because IF I type real quick as I go into a browser I just opened up, KS hasn't quite activated for the "new" application.
IMHO KS is good but not as fast as it needs to be in execution. On a newer 64 bit W7 system I think the H/W has moved ahead of KS coders.
Wait a second or two and see if you observe this
The above-mentioned bug still exists with the latest version 2.9.2!
New version 2.9.3 released.
Own a license to premium but I haven't bothered to install, I like to think with EAM & Online-Armor my machine is clean.
I used to use the Premium version, but it was just useless to me considering D+ and other OS/browser hardening measures. It was quite simply never going to do me any good. So I figured, why take the risk that this product could actually be the thing logging my keystrokes?... when my box is otherwise clean and darn near bullet proof in this regard. Not to mention that even with a light footprint, I like to save every ounce of juice I can.
But to answer the original question, no, it wouldn't provide any protection from screen shots. If you don't use HIPS software, you may want to look into something like Spyshelter for that.
You make a lot of sense, luciddream.
I only had KS Premium remaining on one box, and I just uninstalled it.
I agree, although I don't believe that KeyScrambler will log and sell our data ...
As easy as it is for you to believe they won't, it's as easy for someone else to believe that they will.
I prefer to look at it as reducing the attack surface.
I have KeyScrambler Premium and think it's quite good with my setup and I will be buying another KeyScrambler license close to Christmas for a family member. It passed all the key logging tests I threw at it but sadly it doesn't stop screenshots, for that I think SpyShelter is a good option but that causes overlap on my system.
Sometimes I get the encrypted keystrokes in firefox too but I'm sure that's only when there is a lag on my system or a search box on the page steals the focus, I'm not sure, although that hasn't happened for a while so maybe it is fixed.
hmm even i am thinking of buying KeyScrambler Premium,but i wonder if it would be much of a use with my setup..
They have customer no-service. Same as you no reply about 6 months ago.
Only good this program does is if someone puts (physically) key logger in your machine.
By the way I am using it, cause I fork over the cash.
ok did not know that they had no support,i also see a lack of forum.
KeyScrambler does Not stop Screen-Shots.
