Spyware Trojan sends info back, on internet activity on a ‘target’

“eBlaster records their e-mails, chats, instant messages, Web sites visited and keystrokes typed — and then automatically sends this recorded information to your own e-mail address,”

Here’s a piece of software that will make any decent human being vomit. Proudly marketed by spyware outfit SpectorSoft, it’s a lowlife Trojan called eBlaster which you can e-mail to anyone in the world and log their keystrokes, and force their POP mail and Hotmail and Yahoo Web mail accounts to copy to you, everything going on at the target machine.

“eBlaster records their e-mails, chats, instant messages, Web sites visited and keystrokes typed — and then automatically sends this recorded information to your own e-mail address,” the company proudly states.

It’s marketed as a ‘tool’ for over-protective parents and savvy employers, but it’s basically a script-kiddie toy which can be delivered surreptitiously to a victim. The potential for abuse is extraordinary, but the company makes no mention of that. They merely warn that if you don’t own the computer you infect with their Trojan, you’re violating their terms. Surely that stern warning should discourage the malevolent well enough. [yea right].

It’s all part of a growing, set piece where the private communications of human beings is seen as ‘abuse’ on the job.
