This spyware can use FTP or email to send all the logs to a remote server or email address.

These actions are configured in the program's Control panel of Systems.exe. When the program is in Hidden Mode, it cannot be accessed until it is brought out of Hidden Mode. This can be done with a hot-key combination (the default combination is Ctrl+Alt+Shift+K).
