I know you can do a lot of things with flash... but could it possibly record our keystrokes?

 

 

 

Say... somebody puts flash banner ad on tip.it that seems "normal"... but infact is a virus?

 

 

 

 

 

Far out there?.... or a possiblity? :ohnoes:

Fullmetal Alchemist, you will be missed. A great ending to a great series.

Well the only way you could have gotten a Keylogger was from you clicking on one of the ads. You may have clicked one of the double X's on an ad. One X is a fake one on the Ad and the other is the real X to close the window. Some people fall for it either by accident or not knowing any better.

 

 

 

Let me tell you, Flash can NOT record your keystrokes for a malevolent purpose. Try this, go to any Flash game that requires the use of keys (Arrow Keys, Num Pad, letters, whatever) and mess around with it for a little bit and then switch to a new window. Use those same buttons you were pressing before while on the first window and after doing so, switch back to that first screen. You'll notice that nothing would have changed (except maybe you've lost the game or something). Flash will not be able to interact with keystrokes or mouse position unless you're still on the same screen with it. And even if RS were to put bad Flash ads on their page, you'd still have to click on it or "mouseOver" it to start the process.

Keyloggers don't just get on your pc out of nowhere. You have to do something stupid for that.
