... the so-called keylogger program installed itself in a way most antivirus software could not block

Does this mean if you don't type your password it can't see it?
How about if you copy and paste?

They will still be able to get it. They are looking at the blank that is filled in not the actual keystrokes, if they did that there would be extra info for them to search through.

Just because the screen shows "******" to the user the programs still see the PW.

The only way to be sure of security is to not use the online banking.
