Key logging definition

A method used to capture personal information. It activates itself when selecting a link to a website or opening an attachment that secretly installs software on your computer. Once installed, it records everything you type, including any User IDs, Passwords and account or personal information. Thieves know how to retrieve this information, or even set it up to automatically have it sent back to them. This is a very real risk when using public or shared computers such as those in Internet cafes.
