Brief Description 

    

EliteKeylog is a spyware.

Spyware can be installed either with or without users' consent, and either with or without their knowledge about the data gathered and/or the use of it.

 

It captures certain information entered or saved by the user, with the corresponding threat to privacy: keystrokes, in order to obtain information for accessing online banking services, passwords and other confidential information.

 

It affects productivity, preventing tasks from being carried out:

  • In the affected computer: downloads or drops other malware on the computer: Bifrose.J.

 

It reduces the security level of the computer: it changes the security settings of Internet Explorer, decreasing its security level.

 

EliteKeylog does not spread automatically using its own means. It needs an attacking user's intervention in order to reach the affected computer. The means of transmission used include, among others, floppy disks, CD-ROMs, email messages with attached files, Internet downloads, FTP, IRC channels, peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing networks, etc.
