redpill Spy is now more powerful and easier to use than ever before!
The keylog now has more information and is much easier to read. You will now not only be able to see what was typed but in what application and at what time.
Finding usernames and passwords is now very easy. You will also be able to immediately see where the user logged into and the username and password will be separate from the rest of the keystrokes. See screenshot below:
There are also several other changes and enhancements.
Basic and PRO customers will be able to upgrade free of charge.
redpill Spy can only be opened by typing your secret password. So what do you do when you have lost your password?
The redpill Spy Diagnostic Tool can recover your password and can also be used to analyze the status of redpill Spy on your computer.
The redpill Spy Diagnostic Tool is only available to licensed customers (redpill Spy Basic and redpill Spy PRO customers) and are only supplied to customers on request. If you need this tool please contact redpill and include the email address that you used to purchase the license.
So what do you do when you are only using the free version of redpill Spy (redpill Spy Light) and you have lost your password?
To reset your password back to the default password you can reinstall redpill Spy. Your previous installation will automatically be removed by the new installation. Unfortunately, you will loose your recorded data of the previous installation when you reinstall (if this is a problem you can always upgrade to Basic or Pro so that you can recover the password).
Unlike other keylogger companies that just ask their users to add the program to the ‘White List’ of their antivirus/anti-spy ware, redpill keeps on improving redpill Spy’s ability to stay undetected even though it is a well known keylogger.
You always could have viewed data for any user from any user account on your computer in redpill spy. There was however a problem that you couldn’t have changed the settings from any account and you needed to change the settings from the same account that you used the first time. If you tried you got a message saying “Unable to change the settings from this account …”.
This is now fixed in version 4.54. You can now also change the settings from any user account on the computer.
You can download the latest version from http://www.redpill.co.za
redpill spy version 4.52 has just been published and can now be downloaded.
- Improved data export functionality.
- Additional antivirus detection counter-measures.
- Some UI improvements.
- Websites visited are also now not recorded when you ‘pause’ the surveillance.
To analyze data in redpill spy can be a lot of fun. Looking at the screenshots (see pic below) is straight forward and easy.
The fun comes in when you are analyzing the key log. redpill spy is also a keylogger that logs every key that is typed. Some key loggers will attempt to clean up the data for you but this always leads to loss of data and sometimes the important data you where looking for. redpill spy will do some clean up but will not do any translations that will lead to loss of data.
redpill spy will for example replace multiple backspaces with the number of times a backspace was pressed. This is important as a lot of users will hold the backspace key down to clear a word especially a word in an input field (text box). When the backspace key is hold down the computer will translate that into the backspace being pressed multiple times. The number will depend on how long the key is hold down.
Pazz[backpace][backpace]ssword can be translated as password. You can see that the user pressed the backspace twice to remove to characters. You simply remove the same number of characters before the backspaces as the number of backspaces that was pressed.
Pazz[Backspace x 8]Password. In this case the word can also be translated as password as you can see the user was holding down the backspace to clear a word that was probably in an input field (text box).
Analyzing the data in a keylog can be a lot of fun and the more you work at it the better you get. After a while you will be able to spot a username and password combination from a distance.
Most of my competition gives away a trial version of their software that expirers after a few days. Originally redpill Spy worked the same way but for the last 2 years I have changed that to a free edition. The free edition never expires and is just as discreet as the full version. There are obviously some limitations in the free edition but it’s still a useful working application and I get a lot of good feedback from users that only use the free edition (redpill Spy Light).
Despite the fact that there is a free edition of redpill Spy available … check this out! :
Those searches for cracks and key generators result in nothing !! !! The sites that offer a cracked version (after a payment) only gives an old version of the free edition in any case.
If you don’t want to pay you can relax and know that the free edition delivers what it promises. No pop up messages that will warn the user the computer is being monitored and you can continue to use it for as long as you want.
redpill Agent allows you to remotely and covertly install spy software on a computer anywhere in the world. It allows you to choose from a list of cover applications (a program that gives the impression of doing something else while it secretly installs the spy software) that you can email to a target.
Just emailing the target the file and hoping for the best is not a good idea. Remember that if your first attempt is unsuccessful you will need to wait a few days or weeks before trying again to avoid making the target suspicious.
To improve your chances of success you will need to do some social engineering.
- Find out as much as possible about the target (interests, hobbies, etc).
- Create an alias with an email address and try to befriend the target using email, facebook (or any other social networking site).
- At some stage, not at the beginning, mention how you managed to get rid of your computer performance problems using a great tool to clean up your registry.
- When the target asks about the tool, email him/her your registry cleaner (one of the cover applications in redpill Agent).
- The target will now be eager to run the application and will probably even contact you if he/she has any problems running it.
- While the target is busy typing you an email to thank you for your help, every key will be recorded and secretly emailed to you!
From that point on the computer will be monitored and you will receive key logs and screenshots.
Please remember to only monitor computers that you are legally allowed to monitor and remember to respect people’s privacy.
Every email you type, every website you visit, everything you are looking at … EVERYTHING is secretly being recorded.
Terrifying thought!? … only if you are the target and not the one controlling redpill spy.
Some improvements have been made when monitoring other accounts on a computer in version 4.5.
Every now and then a customer or friend asks me why I chose redpill for a name for my company and website. What does a red pill have to do with spy software?
In the movie ‘The Matrix’, Morpheus offers Neo two options:
“You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
The terms blue pill and red pill have become popular metaphors for the choice between blissful ignorance (blue pill) and the (sometimes painful) truth (red pill).
I would never encourage any one to spy just because they are curious. But sometimes you know, without a doubt, that something is not right and you need to know the truth … you need to know that your life is not a lie.
