This post is a tutorial on how to develop a keylogger for Windows using Python. A keylogger is an application used to capture keystrokes from an unsuspecting user. I'll walk you through the steps of building your own keylogger (with ability to store a file locally or upload it to Dropbox) and explain the steps along the way so you too can start experimenting with Python. In addition, I'll just post the script because I know that's what some of you want.
The following will be broken down into three parts:
- Setting up your Python environment
- Developing the Python script
- Script execution
