Brief Description 

    

PerfectKeyLog.A is a Hacking Tool. Though these programs are legal and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.

PerfectKeyLog.A is a keylogger that has the following functionalities:

  • Log keystrokes and mouse clicks.
  • Log the accessed web pages.
  • Configure and detect keywords in the logged keystrokes.
  • Send the logged file via e-mail or FTP.
  • Run stealthily in the affected computer, without being shown in the Taskbar or the Task manager.

PerfectKeyLog.A is not a risk by itself, but several worms and Trojans use this application in order to collect confidential data: passwords, content of e-mail messages, etc.
