    Has this bug already been fixed? :doubt:

    Its always a sign of reassurance for me if software has good support and has a good forum running.
    If it doesnt then i tend to get suspicious as they could be simply be a one-man band .Acting sneakily etc.:ninja:

    As far as I am aware of, Keyscrambler will not protect against the following type of keyloggers.

    Per Symantec:

    Kernel/driver keyloggers. This type of keylogger is at the kernel level and receives data directly from the input device (typically, a keyboard). It replaces the core software for interpreting keystrokes. It can be programmed to be virtually undetectable by taking advantage of the fact that it is executed on boot, before any user-level applications start. Since the program runs at the kernel level, one disadvantage to this approach it that it fails to capture autocomplete passwords, as this information is passed in the application layer.

    The input from the keyboard is being captured as typed by the keylogger before Keyscrambler would ever see it.

    To be clear though I have no reason to distrust KS. All that time it never did anything shady. My D+ would have told me. It never attempts to connect out. I trust it. Just don't need it. I have keyboard access blocked for FF period for one thing. And I will never have a keylogger on my box unless I put it there intentionally.
