Opinions about this malware:

It is a malware that does not damage our operating system or our machine, but it is against the ethics and privacy of human beings, since they can find our credentials, our private passwords and with that they can blackmail us to give real money and violate our privacy. . Normally we are victims of Keylogger with someone we know or when we go to a Cyber and enter our password from our social networks into a machine, there is probably a Keylogger installed on the computer and we automatically give our privacy to the perpetrator.
