Keylogging by my employer

My university has installed McAffee on the system and it would appear from the McAffee agent status monitor that my every keystroke is being monitored. However, I am not sure I fully understand the output from the Monitor. Would you interpret this for me? File attached.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is nothing there untoward. That is a normal McAfee agent log of a McAfee agent trying to contact the ePO server to see if there are any tasks or updates available. It is not trying to log your keystrokes or what you are doing.


I have never heard of any McAfee component that acts as a keylogger.

There is an anti key-logger software available to check and uninstall key-loggers.  Although if your employer really want't to log you and they know how to hide the process, mediocre user will find it hard to see if you are being tracked.

Although if it is not your computer you are using, I would do anything that may upset my employer.  

For example in my employment contract it states that employer may use surveillance, although my job is nothing special.  my employer just used a contract of the shelf.  

1) McAfee should not record keystrokes and <IanTh> thinks.
2) If you are worried about other key loggers being installed, try Spybot - Search & Destroy, or any other anti-threat application to scan.
3) In log files that you had attached I don't see anything about your keystrokes recorded.
