As the theme for this lab is key-logging, I recount my unsuccessful attempts at retrieving my friend's world of warcraft account credentials. Aside from experimentation as an act desperation back in the day, I have no personal experience using or being exposed for keyloggers. Keyloggers are most known for stealing other peoples passwords without their knowledge, but I've also been involved in companies where they use them as a tool for monitoring and alerting, compliance regulation and After-the-fact investigations. 

Good keyloggers record intricate information such as autocompleting commands in the cmd window by use of the tab key, copy-pasting, spell checkers and spin and drop down controls that change values. Advanced keyloggers will also save screenshots, files and watch the clipboard.
