Keyloggers as Trojan Horses

2015/01/15

Read this Register article for starters.

A $10 giveaway at, say, conferences, could be an effective Trojan Horse.  Samy Kamkar (@samykamkar) has released schematics for a key logger built on the open source Ardunio hobby board.  I don’t quite see how to get the cost down to the claimed $10 without a lot of volume, since the Ardunio board retails for $25.  Perhaps the NSA has some better secret manufacturing plans with more nefarious delivery ideas.

Samy of course hopes that Microsoft and other keyboard manufactures will address such a security hole.
