    Even if there were a "dummy" version posted on curse, which there aren't because all submission are reviewed before they are posted, you can't embed a keylogger into an LUA script that only runs in the environment that wow allows it to run in. So no, you did not get a keylogger from this addon at all.

    In all likelihood you got your infection by allowing scripts to run on your browser and visiting a wow related website that has advertising (malicious in some cases) targeted specifically at game related websites. Curse has, in the past, been the target of these malicious "ads" that install software on visitors systems...but it can happen on any website, especially sites with ads directed at wow players specifically.

    Use Firefox and install the "noscript" addon for it. You then allow scripts to run only from specific and trusted domains..the rest are filtered out and you are safer for it. If you use Internet Explorer, then you have only the option to allow or deny all scripts. If you block all scripts you will not be able to use 90% of the internet, and if you allow all you essentially let any website, including its advertising affiliates such as google, execute code on your system locally.

    I've been using it for 2 years now. So far I haven't been hacked. I downloaded mine from curse though not here. I do know that people have put up dummy versions that are not the real addon and do not stay up for very long before they pull it off.
