When I was playing habbo, the desktop always flashed at intervals. I've heard that there is a kind of software that has the functions of screen shot. I suspect that my dad put this mac keylogger in my computer as he keeps nagging these days that I spend too much time on those online games. Moreover, he has been recently interested in this keylogger for mac, and searched lots of information about it. Plz, is there any way to detect whether my computer gets this keylogger mac or not? Btw, I am a mac user.

key-logger is available for all platforms like linux,windows,mac

Also i am not sure this is the correct solution,you can use a sniffer like comm-view or use a packet capturer like wireshark and you can view the suspicious traffic and detect it,

As a temporary solution i recommend you to install a software like key-scrambbler premium,it will encrypt your key-strokes..

Also i recommend you to submit a hjt log in this forum....
