S-FTP brute force is dangerous as it is a method to drop malware, which presents a wide range of disruptive options, including escalation of privilege, keylogging

The second feature, a virtual keyboard, enables users to enter a password with clicks of the mouse instead of using a physical keyboard, thereby providing a greater level of protection against any possible keylogging
when using D300S on other computers.
We deeply regret using keylogging
software to capture messages you considered sending but decided not to, then sold them to the intended almost-recipient.
Besides employing social engineering tactics and setting up phishing websites, hackers and cybercriminals make use of keylogging
apps to steal passwords and confidential information.
This means that it takes touch data into account for keylogging
. As mentioned above, the keylogger functionality seems to be still under development as currently there is no method for sending the logs to the server.
The malware also has keylogging
capabilities that can pose serious security problems, a source said.
The technologies now being used for private stalking - GPS tracking, keylogging
, microphone-hijacking and spy cameras - were often themselves developed and deployed by governments for espionage or public surveillance.
Pegasus is a full-featured espionage platform developed by Israel-based NSO Group; it performs keylogging
, screenshot capture, live audio and video capture, remote control of the malware via SMS messaging, and data exfiltration from common applications including WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook, Twitter, and Viber.
, or screenshot capture.
Or it could mean that 'private area' is behind the GitHub login pages and some sort of compromise of GitHub must have occurred, most likely by credential stuffing or keylogging
