It is highly recommended you watch the first course in this WPT: Spyware series simply called WPT: Spyware Detection. This course is an extension of that but introduces audio recording the hacker uses to hear all of your private conversations later on when the .wav file is sent to their email. If you decide to not watch the WPT: Spyware Detection course, you should know C++ and be familiar with Visual Studio 2015. You should also be familiar with multithreaded programming.
- This spyware is written in C++, so if you need a refresher check out Up and Running with C++. I highly recommend you watch the first course in the spyware detection miniseries called Windows Performance Toolkit: Spyware Detection. In that course we'll look at the source code for the original version of this key logger, that can now record audio from your microphone. You should know the difference between single threaded and multi threaded apps. Previous multi-threaded programming experience is not required, but it helps. Lastly, we spend sometime looking at the source code in visual studio.
