Keylogger.Revealer Description

Keylogger.Revealer is a detection name used to describe the Revealer Keylogger, a piece of software, which is being advertised as an excellent monitoring tool that can grab screenshots, record keystrokes, and capture conversations or Web camera footage. However, it is clear that a tool capable of all this also can be used for harmful purposes, and this is why the Revealer Keylogger has grabbed the attention of major names in the cyber security field. This tool may often be installed without the knowledge or authorization of the victims, and it could be used for all sorts of harmful purposes – spying on conversations, collecting login credentials or financial data, blackmailing users by threatening to disclose personal info or photos and much more.

Keylogger.Revealer is being advertised as a free application, but its publishers state that the free version comes with limited capabilities. The paid version is available with different prices, and it provides the buyer with access to most of the features that are advertised on the Keylogger.Revealer's website.

Since this is application is available to anyone who is willing to use it, then it is clear that this threat may come from anywhere – spam e-mail, a file sent from a friend, fake downloads, etc. The best protection against such versatile threats is to make sure that your computer is kept safe by a reputable and up-to-date anti-malware software suite, which offers the necessary active and passive protection modules.

Since Keylogger.Revealer is a pretty flexible utility, it is very difficult to detect its presence without running a security tool to scan for threatening behavior on behalf of the software installed on the computer. The keylogger may use random & stealth process names, as well as Registry entries whose purpose is to ensure that the executable will be started when Windows loads.
