Firefox Remote Keylogger [Ultimate Tut]

This post shows how easy is to make a remote keylogger as a Firefox addon. With little knowledge on how to make a firefox addons and coding in javascript you can make a potentialy dangerous add-on. For developing a Firefox add-on you can see here: https://developer.mozilla.org/En/Developing_add-ons.
First download the source code of keylogger from here: Click here . I suggest you to use the Linux operating system. After downloading the source code extract the file and we get some files and folder like this:

1)In the above figure we can see some files over there, basically chrome.manifest and install.rdf. These two files are files for developing a Firefox add-on.
2)Firefox reads a simple plaintext chrome.manifest file to determine what packages and overlays your extension provides.

The install.rdf file has information such as add-on like description, author name, version, etc. Let us open the install.rdf file and see:

3)The third file is key_strokes.php. It is the main file, which will receive the logs and make a text file of all keystrokes.

6)Now there is another folder named chrome in the keylogger source code folder. Inside the chrome folder is another folder named content, which contains a XUL file named remote_keylogger.XUL . We have to do some minor editing in this file, so open the file.

Now we can proceed to make an add-on. Zip the three files, chrome folder, chrome.manifest, and install.rdf, into one and change the extension of zip file into xpi.

8)After zipping these three files, we change the name and extension of the zipped file to adblocker.xpi. Now let us install this add-on to the Firefox browser.
[Image: OicwJTK.png]Yeah! Our add-on is working. It’s asking for installation; click on “Install Now,” as we see in above figure.
