The software will be recording your each and every keystroke either it is your passwords, credit card details, visited websites, and private chat messages. An executable file on the driver controls audio hardware when a person presses special keys. The same software includes a debugging feature that sends all the keystrokes through a debugging device and deposits them to a log file in the public directory on the system’s hard drive. Anyone who has access to your system will be able to access all that information even if they are not authorized to access that information.
