  • Wired Keyboards Remotely Hacked from 20 Meters Away

    That's right folks, wired keyboards...hax...err...hacked.

    Your keystrokes can now to captured wirelessly through walls and floors without installing a physical or software keylogger onto your computer.

    The article is from Tom's Hardware with a link to the original organization, LASEC, who has pioneered this technique and technology.

    Very interesting. I'm sure they'll be approached by the NSA and CIA shortly after they publish their findings. :row__787:

      So does this mean I have to serf the net in a Faraday cage now?

        I am thinking they may have been using something like this...The "BLACK OPS" area has a lot of money behind it....

          If you think you're safe in one. The question is what happens if you run out of food?

              Maybe he will send a serf for the food, while he is surfing in his faraday cage...:icon14:

                I agree, it doesnt look like it can decode a high rate of typing, although he was not typing very fast so it may be able to. This is still in very early development, Im sure with a some tweaking of the code this could become very fast and accurate. We can already see that at low typing speeds it already has 100% average accuracy. Scary!

                  I also was wondering why the program responded so slowly. The only reason I could come up with was that the computer wasn't that new and it had to decode the signals and process them in real-time.

                  I'm pretty sure that code is optimized going off of the simplistic output.

                      It may have been, but this the first proof-of-concept I've seen. Everything else I've read has been mainly theory or speculation.

                        Don't you just step out and grab some food?

                          Err, I thought the whole point was to stay inside with the door closed because you're paranoid to the extreme that something bad will happen to you if you step out?

                            Nope. The point of surf the net inside a Faraday cage is so that others couldn't gain access to your keystrokes using this equipment. Feel free to step outside if you're hungry, need to potty, or just don't feel like using your keyboard. A Faraday cage isn't going to protect you from all bad things anyway.

                              Ironically, if you've decided a faraday cage is the way to go, you've probably already taken lots of "bad things".... or need different "bad things" cause the "bad things" you're taking now aren't doing what the guy said they'd do. ;)
