    I tested Mamutu against 16S simple keylogger and it failed, i always though Mamutu was weak and it seems so.

    I also used Zemana test, spyshelter test and it failed everything.

    Then i was like hmmm, this is weird, i installed CIS and tried and it reported "Keylogging Activities" and blocked, same with Online Armor Premium.

    So IMO, Mamutu needs more rules.
    I'm not saying it's lame, just needs to be improved further with more complex rules. :D

    Now, please people, don't judge Mamutu so fast without trying it ;)
    It is a good behavior blocker, just needs improvement IMO.

    avast!'s Behavioral Shield is nowhere near of Mamutu (or any behavior blocker, or any behavior-based host-based intrusion prevention system) so it won't give any compatibility issues.

    There was an earlier discussion about Mamutu vs some keylogging tests. The reaction of the developers were that the behaviour was not suspicious/malicious enough, but if they also made an internet connection(For example to sumbit the logged keys) then Mamutu would throw an alert.
