protect from keyloggers.
So, I am writing this article to help you protect against keyloggers and stealers.
How to protect from Keyloggers/Stealers:
Below, I have listed some of the best ways to protect from keyloggers:
I am mentioning this first because it is my favorite software. The perfect answer to keylogger is keyscrambler. Keyscrambler encrypts all typed passwords on your computer. Due to this, though you are typing the right passwords, the hacker gets logs which contains encrypted wrong keystrokes. I will not extend this topic over here as I have written article on Keyscrambler - Keyscramber to protect from keyloggers.
2. Deep Freeze:
This is my second favorite. Why??? Because this gives me freedom to test any server, any keylogger or any hacking software on my computer freely - without having any fear of getting myself hacked. Whenever the user restarts his computer, Deep Freeze restores the computer to original state, so that even though any keylogger gets installed on computer in previous session, Deep Freeze does the work on erasing all new changes to computer and restores computer to normal state after restart.
So, if you're using Deep Freeze and have any doubt of keylogger installation on your computer in current session, simply restart your computer to nullify keylogging hacks. Download and read more on Deep Freeze here.
3. Secure Login:
Well, this is the Firefox addon which stores all your online accounts' userids and passwords. Thus, you don't have to type any password. Simply you have to click on Secure Login icon and Secure Login does the work of filling Login information and logging in to your account. So, over here, Keyloggers fail to hack and record keystrokes as we have not typed/used a single key.
You can install this Firefox addon over here - Install Secure Login.
Note: I will say that a combination of Deep Freeze, Secure Login and Keyscrambler is hard to crack.
Sandboxie creates a separate virtual memory which is independent of your computer. This is great tool when you don't trust a download or freeware. Sandboxie helps you to monitor the actions, the suspicious file is doing and then you can evaluate whether the file is binded with stealer or keylogger. When you close Sandboxie, you can erase all changes done by suspicious file, thus preventing yourself from being hacked. You can read more on Sandboxie here.
If you want to run multiple Operating Systems on a single physical machine, use can use VMWare Workstation to serve your purpose. You can use one Operating system for testing suspicious files, so that any damage caused will be limited to this "test operating system" and your original Operating System will remain intact.
Download VMWare Workstation from here.
6. Using Browsers:
Most stealers are made for Internet Explorer and Firefox. We all being Firefox lovers(all hackers are), use Firefox in our computers and are probable of falling victim to Firefox stealers. So, why not use other Firefox based browsers which provide same Firefox engine, functionality and all addons same as Firefox default browser. Techdrivein list such 5 Firefox based browsers.
What additional benefit we get is such browsers don't have stealers. So, though you have saved passwords in such browsers, there are no or very less stealers made for such browsers. In such cases, though stealer is installed on your computer, it will search for locally stored passwords in Firefox and IE directories and thus, your passwords remain safe in, say Flock directory(Firefox based browser), which is untouched by Stealer.
So friends, I hope now you will able to
protect yourself from Keyloggers and Stealers.
