Keylogger That Isn't Detected By My Antivirus

Hi,

Does anyone know a keylogger that won't be detected as a harmful tool or whatever by AVG 8.5?

Hardware keyloggers aren't detectable by AVG.

Or, you could write a software one and let us know how you go :)
My effort to help you will never exceed your effort to explain the problem.

Second what ^^^ said. Any software keyloggers 'in the wild' you can bet are on every AV app's detection list ...

Even if you're a beginner at programming and writing a key logger might seem daunting, it's actually a fairly simple piece of software. You can find guides on how to write them fairly easily.

You also have to remember, however, that even if you code your own, there's a chance that an AV will pick up on it. They look for certain calls within the program as far as I know - I don't know a lot.

If you're planning on just distributing it to one computer, you can just set up the AV that computer is running on your own computer and scan (while offline so you don't have to worry about the AV sending your keylogger back to the main AV servers) - if it's detected as a keylogger, go modify it until it's not. If it scans as clean, you're all set!

However, if you aren't planning to attack any certain system or AV, you'll probably want to scan it with a lot of AVs to see the results. For an example, upload a file to VirusTotal (http://www.virustotal.com/) and see how they do it. The disadvantage of using that site for homemade things is that it sends your executable to every AV on the list. A better approach would be to install the AVs you're interested in on a VM, and scan your file. And then run it on the VM and see if anything picks it up. :)
