RE: [Full-disclosure] Most common keystroke loggers?



In 1996, this virtual keypad concept was broken by taking 10x10 pixel images
under the cursor click, showing the number/letters used in that password.

Virtual keypads are just a minor change of tactics, not a long term
resolution to this risk, imho.

To me the only thing that can defeat keystroke is what a software or
trojan can not do: See (OCR is just a partial application of guess
but not applicable in that case)
Imagine a web page with a virtual keyboard page (clickable). In order
to prevent the localisation on the keys mapping based on position of
the mouse, display the keyboard on random location of the screen. Add
a random password and challenge authentication process.

my 2 cents,
