The computer spy program Wolfeye Keylogger is enjoying increasing popularity: The monitoring software is only 270 kb in size and uses very few resources. The program makes it possible to turn your own computer into a private investigator.
The small detective program secretly saves all keystrokes in the background without the user noticing. In this way you have access to passwords, chat conversations, Facebook, email, visited websites and much more. The keylogger sends the data to the email address of the supervisor and thus enables complete remote monitoring of the relevant computer.
