Antikeylogger

What are Norton Security anitkeylogger capabilities?  Is it best to add a 3rd party product for this specific capability?

Re: Antikeylogger

Norton Security is a full suite. You do not need any other software alongside of it.

Re: Antikeylogger

Thank you.  Is there on-line document that outlines Norton Security capabilities and actually mentions antikeylogging?

Re: Antikeylogger

It is all on Norton.com. Every antivirus now a days has an antilogger. But that is the least problem. Ransomware is what you need to be aware of now a days.

AntiLogger provides keystroke encryption and is designed to prevent keyloggers from capturing your keystrokes. 
Norton detects, blocks actual keyloggers.

Re: Antikeylogger

Hi I. C. Crowley:

You might also want to read Need2KnowNow's thread Anti key logger for 64-bit PC running NIS.  It's a few years old but it has some good information on Norton's detection of keyloggers and the pros and cons of using third-party anti-loggers like Zemana Antilogger and SpyShelter along with Norton.  There are even a few test results showing how Norton was able to detect a test file (key_sim.exe) from Zemana's keylogger simulation test program as Spyware.Keylogger - see Krusty13's image <here> for one example.

It appears that Zemana has moved (or completely removed) the web page for their keylogger simulation test (previously located at http://www.zemana.com/securitytests.aspx) since Need2KnowNow's thread was created in 2014.  Does anyone know of another good keylogger simulation test program?  I just tried SpyShelter's Security Test Tool at https://www.spyshelter.com/security-test-tool/, but Norton Insight quarantined the antitest.exe file (generic threat name WS.Reputation.1) before I even had a chance to start the keylogger test.  I excluded the file in order to restore it from quarantine but realized afterwards that this would probably render the keylogger test useless since I forced Norton to ignore the executable.

Look under "K"

Hi PatsSoxBruins:

Most keyloggers are detected by Norton as spyware (e.g., Spyware.123Keylogger, Spyware.ABDKeylogger, Spyware.StealthLogger, Spyware.SuperKeylogger, etc.) so the OP will actually find most keylogger detections listed under "S" at https://www.symantec.com/security_response/landing/azlisting.jsp?azid=S.

Re: Antikeylogger

Thank you all.  I believe this will suffice as evidence for the agency seeing formal validation.

Hi Krusty13:

Lots of good tips in that Norton blog entry but the info looks several years out-of-date.  Item #2 ( Change to limited-user mode) starts with  "Assuming you have the Windows XP operating system on your computer and not the brand-new Vista..." and Item # 4 (Consider changing web browsers) suggests that users change from IE to a more secure browser like AOL Netscape, Opera or Firefox.

Item # 1 advises users to use anti-spyware software but doesn't address the modern anti-spyware capabilities of Norton v22 products.
