    Is it possible for me to have keyloggers running on my Mac without me knowing?

    Nobody else uses my computer, but I have reason to believe that somebody has obtained one of my passwords (which isn't particularly easy to guess).

    Yes it is possible. There are some keyloggers available for the mac.

    Read through this website. I has a lot of useful information on preventing and detecting keyloggers on macs.

    Someone would have to know your Admin password to install a keylogger.
    And they would need physical access to your computer or be in range of your network.

    Well that is not the case, as I have never given anybody my admin password, nor written it down anywhere.

    thanks for the link, btw.

    Then you did find a keylogger installed on your computer?
