Abstract

Recently, there is a problem of stealing account data from customers of major banks and e-commerce sites by malicious codes embedded in web sites. There was also another problem of stealing bank account data using PCs in an internet cafe. On these PCs, software that collects keyboard input automatically and sends the data by e-mail was installed. This invention offers a new automatic blocking mechanism for leakage of personal information.
