Key logger
Key loggers are hardware devices or software programs which record all information entered into a machine via a keyboard.

Criminals deploy both types of key loggers to capture personal information such as passwords and credit card numbers. Key loggers can be installed on a computer without a user's knowledge. Using up-to-date anti-Spy ware software Will help protect against the download of these programs.
    
The Risk of key logging is far greater when using computers shared by a number of users. Criminals have been known to place hardware devices on public access computers; equally the Risk of other users downloading software variants is also greater in shared environments.
    
Key logging can be useful to determine sources of errors in computer systems, to study how users interact and access with systems, and is sometimes used to measure employee productivity on certain clerical tasks. Such systems are also highly useful for law enforcement and espionage - for instance, providing a means to obtain passwords or Encryption keys and thus bypassing other Security measures. Key loggers are widely available on the Internet.
