As you are able to to write your own keyboards for android it could be assumed that a keyboard could be written that functions like a normal keyboard while at the same time logging the input and passing it back to the attacker. Such an application shouldn't be to hard to write.
Yes, it is possible to detect unknown keyloggers and other malware, usually through computer forensics (Volatility or EnCase are well-known software for doing that). Keylogger detection, as for viruses and other malwares, can basically be achieved through two methods (I simplify for answer's clarity) : Signature based detection Heuristic based detection ...
In theory, you could stop all the applications that you know are generating network traffic, then write a small piece of code to simulate lots of key typing events and monitor the network traffic to look for increased chatter over the wire. Even if the traffic is encrypted and sent in bulk packages, you could still have get a general idea about what your ...
Yes but normally not an easy task There is a framework exactly for this called Volatility: bunch of tools written in python it will crawl through the memory to determine if any keyloggers are running check it out at https://code.google.com/p/volatility/ hope that helps
The key item is whether you know whether there is a keylogger (or have reasonable suspicion) or you just want a way to automatically detect it. In the first case an investigation is very likely to lead to something: data travelling back to the attacker (as others have pointed out), suspicious devices, evidence of tampering, and so on. In the latter case ...
Yes. You could, for example, perform a code audit to identify software that is out of place. Or you might be able to detect the data as it travels back to the attacker.
Yes you can record keystrokes by user on android device simply by reverse engineering the keyboard app . http://www.android-app-development.ie/blog/2013/03/06/inserting-keylogger-code-in-android-swiftkey-using-apktool/ Here is one example where attacker attaches malware to the famous swiftkey keyboard using apktool
Stopping android to send keyboard keystrokes: A scenario for preventing the keyboard on sending would be by using a firewall. For NON-Rooted phones this ones should do the trick: NoRoot Firewall >> www.play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=app.greyshirts.firewall Mobiwol >> www.play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.netspark.firewall In this moment, ...
