Yeah , its dangerous.
Keylogger often install at your comp like trojan, stealth.
His main option - save all what u write by the clipboard (passwords, id, some codes etc), and send to server ( server mean - owner keylogger).

Best protect - AntiSpyware program

Keyloggers are trying to find any passwords and other sensative info that you may type or submit to webpages or programs. Some are targetted by antivirus/trojan programs. Some are also targetted by antispyware programs, like Spybot Search & Destroy. Being carefull about what you download, or open in emails is one way to protect yourself.
