       - 38% of corporate data resides exclusively on mobile devices: tablets, smartphones, laptops
       - Keylogging is a form of Malware and is undetectable
       - 98% of all malware breaches involve some form of keylogging
       - Over 70 million mobile devices are stolen or lost every year, that number is rising
       - ONE laptop is stolen every 53 seconds 43% off-site, 33% in transit, 24% in the workplace
       - 66% of employees use unsanctioned file sharing
       - 93% of organizations fail to backup tablets and smartphones
       - Over 50% of lost devices result in a data breach involving malware
       - Estimated total cost of the loss of ONE laptop = $49,250
 
 

Explaining Keylogging and How to Protect Yourself

This an introduction of keylogging and how to protect yourself from it.

Keyloggers: Three Types

NIST scientists identified three main types of keyloggers:

 

  1. Hardware -- Tiny inline devices placed between the keyboard and the computer. Because of their size, they can go undetected for long periods of time. These devices have the power to capture hundreds of keystrokes, including banking and email username and passwords. But for the criminal, the threat of being caught breaching the machine is a deterrent.

  2. Software -- This type of keylogging is done by using the Windows function SetWindowsHookEx that monitors all keystrokes. The spyware will usually appear packaged as an executable file that initiates the hook function, plus a DLL file to handle the logging functions. An application that calls SetWindowsHookEx is capable of capturing even autocomplete passwords.

  3. Kernel/driver -- This kind 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. This type of keylogger can be programmed to be virtually undetectable by being executed when the computer is turned on, 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.

"Keyloggers aren’t going away anytime soon; they’re practically as common as dirt in the world of spying and crime." PCWorld July 2017
