Using a Keylogger to log credentials is better than using a RAT(Remote Administrator). The reason behind that is, RATs have a lot of functions and some of them may look suspicious to victims even if they silently run in the background.
This is the reason that if we only need credentials, why don’t we install only a Keylogger? There are a lot of open-source Keyloggers on the internet and also paid versions with GUI.
Beelogger maybe one of the best open-source Keyloggers who send logs to E-mail. But here we are not going to talk about Beelogger, we are going to talk about HatKey.
HatKey is a simple powerful Keylogger made to work through PowerShell on Windows. If you want to use a Keylogger on a Machine for a while and silently switch it off after the work done without letting the victim know about any suspicious activity then it is the best open-source tool for you.
The best thing about HatKey is, it is fully undetectable.
Let’s get into the tutorial on how we can configure it on Kali Linux.
