where is this public computer that has keylogger installed?

i would seriously complain regarding the use of keyloggers on a publicly accessible computer (especially in a college or library or internet cafe or wherever)

since in my opinion it is an invasion of privacy and i'm sure in those cases it's against the law..

Its a very common thing everywhere in public computers..

you just don't know if there is a a keylogger installed.
the shopkeeper doesn't know anything. he sits there deal with the customers. Thats all.

You made a complain. They go clean it up. And next several days. It comes back again.

I have seen some public computers let the users 90% control of it. Install programs this and that.

I sometimes also use public in case of emergency. I created another admin account with access to most admin parts in my XOOPS site. and only use it on public comps. I'll change the password everything i use it. whatever has been log by the keylogger would be useless.

Hhehehe. For your information, I`m living in indonesia whereas there is a lot of internet cafe and the cafe user can install it themself. And we as the user can do nothing about this. Too bad..

Just wonder is someone make a module or whatever to enable virtual keyboard. anyone? :P
