Re: identify key-loggers

By howard48906 ·
Dear Sir

I would like to see an article that would detail building a Linux Live CD that would identify and pinpoint the location of any keystroke loggers/screen capture software on a machine. The option to delete the offending software would be a plus. The ability to update for new software releases would be a must.

Some employers install this type of software on machines and don't tell the crew about it. They use it to spy/minitor computer usage and productivity.

It would be a great advatage to confirm the existence or abscense of such software with the option to remove it or live with it. Doing that with a live boot CD would reveal the software without leaving a trace of the scan on the suspect machine.

Thank you.

You should contact TR Directly through the Site Help & Feedback link on the bottom of this Page or for that matter every TR Web Page.

However having said that are you aware of the Trinity Rescue Kit? It's description is here

and says in part Trinity Rescue Kit or TRK is a free live Linux distribution that aims specifically at recovery and repair operations on Windows machines, but is equally usable for Linux recovery issues.
It is possible to boot TRK in three different ways:
-as a bootable CD which you can burn yourself from a downloadable isofile
-from a USB stick/disk (optionally also a fixed disk), installable from Windows or from the bootable TRK cd

You can download from here
