Encryption outsmarts keyloggers

Techworld reports that a German company, PMC Ciphers, has come up with a program that can protect against keyloggers, which record passwords and phrases as they are entered by the user.

Apparently the system works around a virtual keyboard feature, built into the encryption utility TurboCrypt. This can encrypt keyboard characters on-the-fly, before keylogging or screen capture malware has had a chance to record what is being entered.

The company claims its system is so secure, that it will work even if the computer is infested with malicious Trojans.
