InvisibleKlog is a hacking tool. Though these programs are legitimate and useful tools when they are appropriately used, a hacker could take advantage of them in order to carry out malicious actions.
InvisibleKlog is a shareware program that logs the keystrokes typed by the user in a text file. It can be used to gather passwords or other sensitive information, thus posing a threat to users' privacy.
It can be configured to run in stealth mode so that the user is unaware of its presence.
InvisibleKlog does not pose a risk by itself, but it can be used with malicious intentions.
Bear in mind that InvisibleKlog only works properly on Windows Me/98/95 computers. However, there are also versions for Windows XP/2000/NT computers.
InvisibleKlog is difficult to recognize as it does not display any messages or warnings that indicate it has reached the computer.
