    Diablo Keys
    I was working signed on with my AOL ISP and the AOL scanner started to go and came up with Diablo Keys, a keylogger, description below. Anybody have any idea how i would pick up something like this or know anything about it? Thanks

    Diablo Keys

    Description - provided by Aluria
    Diablo Keys is a Windows keylogger. It is able to log all keystrokes, including those performed in DOS sessions. It will create logs of all keystrokes and send them back to a predetermined destination using FTP or SMTP. It is very customizable on the attackers end and can be difficult to remove as it places entries in startup folder, win.ini file, system.ini file, and multiple Windows registry startup keys.

    Reportedly Diablo Keys will not only send captured information back to you but it also reportedly sends additional information back to those that created Diablo Keys, therefore doubling the risk posed to the end user.

    I got that pop up too! Same thing too, I was using aol. I ran Mcaffee, adaware, spybot & the microsoft scan and they all say I am fine. I'm trying to find out more about it.

    Appears to be some sort of glitch, a false positive. I dug around aol, the message boards, a few web boards.

    While Diablo Keys is a real threatů if you really have itů
    It seems that AOL has a problem with it whether you have it or not...

    "I'm not sure whether to believe their scanner. That computer is an XP box with SP 2, all the patches, Norton Internet Security, BOClean, PestPatrol, Spybot Search & Destroy, MS AntiSpyware, and AdAware. I regularly scan for malware and never find much beyond cookies and occasional adware. I'm in the process of scanning now to see what turns up."

    "Interestingly, clicking on the "more info" link takes you to AluriaSoftware for a brief description of Diablo Keys and gives you an opportunity to purchase a program called Spyware Eliminator from them.
    I'm not so sure but what AOL software should be classified as malware."


    Now that's funny...

    fwiw

    Thanks, i think it's what you guys posted, a problem on the AOL/Aluria end. I'm real careful about keeping my computer clean and ran all the other scanners i have and they didn't pick up anything.
