Keyloggers and System monitors are either commercial or non-commercial. A commercial system monitor is a piece of software with system monitor characteristics, obtained with a legitimate license by legal means. All other system monitors are non-commercial system monitors. The system monitor category encompasses any software that performs the following actions:

  • Overtly or covertly records system processes and/or user actions
  • Makes those records available for retrieval and review at a later time
These processes can include any action on a machine from the time it turns on to the time it turns off, such as:

  • Time of power on
  • Login information
  • E-mail passwords
  • Financial account information
  • Credit card numbers
  • Social security numbers
  • Screenshots
  • Phone numbers
  • Addresses
  • Keystrokes
  • Webcam photos
  • Sound
  • Time of power off
  • Any other computer activity
