Keylogging in MSN, Outlook Express, and CuteFTP (moved from Networking)

840 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  jadiknight
I have many layers of defence in my computer, including virtualization and a 0-day attack app called CyberHawk. Everything was going fine, until the other day, CyberHawk started alerting me that Outlook Express was logging keystrokes. I chose to deny it, and it was shut down immediately, and then again once or twice more after I started it but then it's been fine ever since.

Then CH alerted me that MSN was logging keystrokes. After denying it, now MSN continues to shut down during conversations, and it is very frustrating. Then CuteFTP it turns out was logging strokes but due to the necessity of transferring files I have chosen to allow it.

I have tried all kinds of rootkit and malware detectors and at worst they found a couple of low risk ad tracking cookies, but the problem persists.

Is the keylogging normal in these apps?? What should I do?

Thanks kindly in advance for any input.

Hello jadiknight, and welcome to TSF:

Please read this thread

Please download HijackThis . This program will help us
determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Double-click on the file you just downloaded. Click
on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\PROGRAM FILES\HIJACKTHIS\
Run a scan and save the log file. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.
Make sure to include the System information at the top of the log as well.

Post your HJT log in HJT Log Help Forum
and an analyst will help you.

Keylogging found. Scans and logs posted.

Hello, I had posted a question a little while ago suspecting some malware on my computer, as I found out that some programs like MSN, Outlook Express, and CuteFTP were keylogging. I was told to run some scans and post the results. I have not cleaned anything from the scan results, beyond what some of these programs have done automatically.

I am attaching a zip of the 6 logs from my scans. I will note that even though the HijackThis scan seems ok, it gave me an error message the first time I ran it, and then compiled the log. When I ran it again to see the error message again, I didn't get it, and it created what looks like an identical log.

I would very much appreciate your input on what I should do next.
