KeyPhantom has introduced the first USB hardware keylogger. A key logger or keystroke logger, is a device or software program which records each keystroke used by a user. Great way to steal passwords. Or according to KeyPhantom, it’s a great way to back up your typing. Yeah.

The KeyPhantom features a stealth-like design in that it looks exactly like a USB extension cable. It’s key to look stealth for writers to back up their writing… not for hackers to steal passwords.

The USB keylogger works with any USB keyboard — PC or Mac. It has 128Kb of flash memory which should be enough to store 2 weeks of typing. You can retrieve the keystrokes from any computer – even a different one than the one you stole — I mean recorded — the keystokes from.

The USB key logger requires no software so installation is literally plugging the keylogger between the keyboard and USB port. Just like a USB extension cable :)

To retrieve the data you simply open any text editor and type “phxlog” No software needed.

Very cool and it will only cost you $199. Just a few passwords and credit card numbers will more than cover the cost.
