Wiretap keylogger is a valid program available for download at many popular sites.
Such software may at times be detected by anti-virus or anti-malware scans as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool, or "Potentially unwanted tool". Anti-virus and anti-malware utilities cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user or even remove them.
These types of programs may have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user or administrator has knowingly installed it. Potentially unwanted does not necessarily mean the file is malware or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others.
If you did not install this program, is it possible that your parents or another member of your family installed it?
