I'm a little worried about unauthorized keystroke loggers getting my account ids and passwords when I log into web sites. Does anyone know to what extent a software firewall like ZoneAlarm protects against unauthorized keystroke loggers?
It seems to me that when such a logger attempts to contact it's home base to send back the keystroke data, the software firewall will detect the attempt. I know that this assumes that the firewall is properly configured and that the user pays attention to the ZoneAlarm popup message. But if these conditions are true then it seems like the firewall will catch the logger.
