Ive been researching if tgf could be used as spyware and found out it can very well be used as spyware.After reading the source code of key logger 2 you can embed keylogging code in games and make it connect to the internet and send very confidential info to a server.I have sucsessfully attemped it on two remote computers and it can be used for evil.I have a solution to this.Get a firewall and it should detect a spyware game connecting to the internet.If you suspect a spyware game and the game is closed, open task manager and see if the game is still running, if it is, its doing something that is not supposed to be doing.

It can be easily hidden, you can make it dissapear from the Task Manager and give it a name like SVCHOST under the processes, but seriously no one would botherm they might do it on a family member or something but wouldnt actually do it because most likely there gonna get jack shit out of it.

you can tell a maliscious "SVCHOST" because it's running under your username rather than under "System" etc.

You could also add it to Windows.ini under
[run]
tgfspyware="C:\location\here.exe"

The problem is distributing it.

If anyone would fall for TGF/MMF spyware then they obviously aren't interested very much in their security. Keyloggers, remote admin servers / file browsers can be incorporated into any TGF/MMF application but the one thing that they all use is a port! (duh) For security reasons I close all ports that are not needed therefore if they are closed the servers cannot listen/send data to them Some, if coded correctly can be a bit more sneaky than that and sometimes not even a firewall could detect it but I am sure that is beyond the thoughts of all of our klikers.

An application could use port 80 (always open) to save data to a web server. However a firewall would notice the app trying to access the internet and would notify you.

Moral of the story: Use a firewall

If someone would want to make a spyware ridden game it would have to connect through port 1200 cause thats what MOO connects through. The way TGF was built detects keys when the program window isnt open.I was able to detect who was on my computer when I was at school and was able to get every key that was pressed.

MOO will use whichever port you want

Moral of my story: Don't use firewalls, they are bad for your health...and internet connection (for me anyway had to install Win XP four times in one day due to firewalls o_O now I have SP2 and my hacker friend found...2...ports into my computer)

why would you need a key logger plugin?, everything you need to make a spyware game is in TGF
