    This may be a dumb question but has anyone ever heard of anyone getting a keylogger trojan on a Mac? I recently got one on my Dell and I got screwed big time. Now I just use my Mac because I feel safer but are they out there?

    I don't think so. I still think we can count the number of known trojans on Mac OS X on one hand, and none of them have had the means to spread effectively.

    Yeah. I was told that the reason keyloggers even existed was that so parents could watch what their kids were doing. Then the evil people turned it around and used it.:mad:
