View Full Version : [all variants] Logging keystrokes?

May 7th, 2008, 08:40 AM

I'd like to know, from a security standpoint, if there is any way of capturing keystrokes in Linux. Kind of like Windows Keyloggers.

I understand that it will need root privileges etc, but I'm be curious to know.

Considering that everything is a device file in linux, I assume that it will be really easy... anybody have any thoughts?
