Warning over wireless keyboard use

A warning is being issued by the security firm Symantec over a potential problem that could affect users of the Microsoft and Logitech wireless keyboards.

The problem is coming from a group named, which has been working on an open source project for almost two years that can effectively intercept all of the keystrokes made on a wireless keyboard using the 27 MHz wireless radio transmission frequency.

It works by analysing the electromagnetic patterns that occur when the wireless keyboard is being used.

The good news is that the device has to be around ten metre away from the target in order to read the signals.

The bad news is that each keystroke can be picked up, including passwords and just about anything else that is typed on the keyboard.
