Keylogger help

P: 1
Hey, my name's Nick, and I seriously need some help.

One of my friends has been dating his girlfriend for coming up 2 years now, and recently there's been way too many rumours around school she's being unfaithful. A few days ago, he came to me asking for my help for some way of tracking what she types on her PC (I'm his best friend, he knows I'm computer savvy, but I'm nowhere near code-savvy :\), and I've agreed to help him.

I have no knowledge of keyloggers, and she has security software. I have no knowledge of how to send this keylogger either.

Thus I am asking for help. She has basic security software (a lame brand I've never heard of), and I have no knowledge of how to send it. Could anybody help me code a keylogger? Any help sending one as well?

Please please PLEASE if you code one do NOT make it malicious, I've only found this site through Google, I don't know if you would or not, but that's the only reason I've heard people using keyloggers for.

Yours with sincere gratitude,

Wouldn't that be an infringement on someone's privacy? Even the police needs
to have formal permission before they're allowed to tap someone's phone. I think
your friend should talk with his girlfriend instead of trying to spy on her. That would
never be a fine basis for a healthy relationship.

kind regards,

Not to mention that on this site we do not provide solutions to people we help them with the problems they are having while writing their own code and that discussion of malicious software (which a keylogger falls under) is against site rules and could lead to a ban on you account.

As Jos has said, open discussion with the his girl friend (no accusatory) is the only real way forward. Any worthwhile relationship requires trust and spying on the other person is probably one of the least trusting things you can do. If he got found out then it would almost certainly end the relationship.

If having talked to her he still can't trust her then their probably is no relationship left.

As you can see, there are strong feelings and rules against this sort of thing on this site. As you were very upfront about it, this is a warning - while we welcome discussion on most topics - please do not attempt to discover or create malicious code or methods on this site. Doing so will have action taken against your account as described in the Posting Guidelines .

Please have a look through there, as we state the rules of this site. I hope you stick around to become more code savvy - of course, in a non-malicious or illegal (as it is her computer it is very illegal) way.

This thread is now closed as the rules on this especially are non-negotiable, though I'd be more than happy to discuss them through a PM if you're confused about anything.

Thanks and welcome,
