No specifics, but nothing illegal or happening.
Most days my computer use involves using a PC outside my home. I know that keylogging is used from those computers. The keylogging is supposedly for security reasons only. This is understandable as a person could do some serious mayhem and they need to know about it if it does. However, for some things such as accessing my bank account and other sensitive content, I’d prefer passwords/etc to not be known by people I really don’t know.
Now, to everyone that’s going to say “Do it on your home computer”, let me say that there are days when a payment is due before I get home, and the money isn’t available until that morning after I leave home. The point is, nothing illegal, treasonous or underhanded.
Anyway, I use Putty and SSH to “tunnel” to my home system, then access any private stuff. What I’m wondering is this.
I know when I use this config, it’s undetected by the SysOp. It just looks like noise. But is the keylogging still able to pick up the passwords, etc.? Am I really keeping private info private doing this? Or am I just using a fancy way of giving away a lot of personal info?
