There are even Bronze, Diamond, and Platinum packages available, each offering different functions and services for the infection, even free support (in the case of the Diamond package).

What does iSpy Keylogger do?
Depending on the type of file used by the program, the installation pattern of this keylogger may differ. For example, one custom packer used by the criminals to compress the installer file uses a particular method to slow down the analysis.
At first, once the installation is triggered, this packer injects a new DLL loader into a new system process. This new DLL process continues to initiate the dropping of the payload into your system. It executes the code that runs and loads the main malicious file. Once that is done, the infection starts monitoring your clipboard and logs into your webcam. It can also capture your screen images, log keystrokes, and steal passwords and other sensitive information.
Needless to say, it is not just a one-time occurrence. The infection creates an entry in the registry that allows this program to run on every system startup. If the user does not delete iSpy Keylogger in a timely manner, the program sends the stolen data to the attacker, and then it is up to the criminals what they will do with it. The bottom line is that this infection is extremely dangerous, and you should not tolerate it any longer.
