A New Way To Foil Keyloggers?

PC Tools has released a new version of Spyware Doctor, 3.2, with what it calls “groundbreaking Keylogger Guard technology that protects users from identity thieves”. A press release says:

Existing solutions can allow keylogger threats to run undetected for weeks or months by which time the damage is already done. Spyware Doctor 3.2’s Keylogger Guard detects and removes keylogger threats in real-time before they are able to steal personal information.

It does this by looking at “behavior rather than signatures….Keylogger Guard detects the behavior immediately, blocking keyloggers from installing on the user’s system and protecting customers right away, not weeks or months too late.”

Sounds interesting, although I’m not sure it’s exactly groundbreaking. Or is it? A trial version of Spyware Doctor 3.2 can be downloaded at www.pctools.com and costs $30.
