    A friend of mine discovered my Facebook password by logging in on my mac, typing a few lines of code in the terminal. Then a text file appeard containing all of my keyboard input from my last login. He won't tell me how he did it, other than it had nothing to do with a keylogger.
    I'm puzzeled, but i bet you guys know more about this :).

    Are you sure it had all keyboard input? If so, I'm calling BS - your friend installed a key logger.

    If it just contained passwords, then he probably used the command line tool "security".
