    Default KeySweeper, Arduino-based Keylogger for Wireless Keyboards

    KeySweeper, Arduino-based Keylogger for Wireless Keyboards

    "Security researcher has developed a cheap USB wall charger that is capable to eavesdrop on almost any Microsoft wireless keyboard.

    MySpace mischief-maker Samy Kamkar has released a super-creepy keystroke logger for Microsoft wireless keyboards cunningly hidden in what appears to be a rather cheap, but functioning USB wall charger.

    The stealthy Arduino-based device, dubbed "KeySweeper", looks and functions just like a generic USB mobile charger, but actually sniffs, decrypts, logs, and reports back all keystrokes from a Microsoft wireless keyboard.

    According to the researcher, the unit cost for KeySweeper ranges from $10 to $80, depending on which functions a user requires.

    Wonders how one could stay protected against such type of eavesdropping.
