Working with mouse with on-screen keyboard? There are keyloggers who can capture coordinates of mouse-clicks. Yet, there are also keyloggers who just capture screenshots. So that method ain't really bulletproof. It's called screen-capturing. Copy and paste? Nope. Some (imho, sophisticated) malware can even extract what you've copied from memory. Besides ...

My knowledge is out of date, but several years ago I worked at a U.S. agency that wanted to understand how to maximize security for end users using PCs that were not under the agency's control, e.g. for some end user who logs from their home, from their employer, or from the public library.

By far the only sure ...

Implement a method that displays the window title of the window that KeePass will send the password to. That way you have the chance of detecting that it's an incorrect window. Implement a method to detect quick focus loss and ...

There are plenty of security measures to take, starting with the most basic but most important: good firewall rules. But this can be very complicated in some situations. Instead of taking the approach to try to make something very difficult, why not take the easy detection way ? In order for a keylogger to function, it would require an active process. Take ...
