Keylogger.Revealer

Originally, Keylogger.Revealer is a free monitoring tool developed by Logifox. It can be downloaded from https://www.logixoft.com/en-us/index by anyone. It is not harmful until cyber criminals modify it and use it for malicious purposes. Unfortunately, as specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have observed, more and more cyber criminals discover this piece of software and use it to spy on users. It is not so easy to find out about the presence of Keylogger.Revealer on the system because this keylogger does not open any window. Instead, it works silently in the background. Consequently, it takes time to detect it. We know one trick that will help you to detect this infection if it has already been uploaded onto the computer by cyber criminals – you should be able to find a new process, e.g., rvlkl.exe in Task Manager. Also, Keylogger.Revealer drops an executable file on the affected machine, but since Keylogger.Revealer is already 9 years old, and cyber criminals have modified it a number of times during this time, the malicious file belonging to this keylogger might be placed in any folder, so you might not even notice it at first. Either way, you cannot keep Keylogger.Revealer active on your PC because its presence can only bring privacy-related problems to you. Read more »
