  • There hasn't really been a true remote installation keylogger since the days of eBlaster. In those days you could just attach an .exe file to an email or MySpace message and it would execute on the PC.

    Nowdays, with Windows 10 especially, there are a few options. The big difference being in how the keylogger is binded and delivered. Binding is the ability to attach the keylogger to another file such as a JPG or PDF.

    And the delivery is more complex. You must upload the file to DropBox or Google Drive, then get the link to the file and send that to the remote PC you wish to monitor.

    On the target computer, the user must open the email and download the file and confirm the download. The file extension will appear as "whatever_you_call_it.jpg", but the computer will treat it no differently than any other .exe file.

    In the background whats happening is a double extention. "myfile.jpg.exe", on the front end however (on the target computer) it will only show as "myfile.jpg".

    And that is the closest there is to a remote installation keylogger nowadays, simply because Windows 10 is so effective at detecting virus's - because they have labeled EVERYTHING as a virus.

    The best resource is http://remotekeyloggers.net - They have one page which I can't seem to find, and it only has remote installation keyloggers. Strangely enough, it is now easier to remote install a keylogger to an iPhone than a PC.
