Hmmm... Now I want to take MY laptop apart, to see if the keyboard is connected to any "extra" circuits.

Did you remove it?

Now I also want to take apart my keyboards, and trace the wiring in my computer.

I for one don't like it one bit.

Does anyone else have any further information about this?

Now that is fascinating!!!

I do computer forensic here and have never heard of that...

This came up on here a couple of years ago, and was debunked.

I'm having trouble pulling it up on search, but it was in the website related discussion area.

I would love it if you could find it.

I've done some looking for it myself, no joy.

Found it.

I didn't have any luck finding the thread for it either. Luckily I had replied to the old one, and the link was still saved in my subscription links.

Thread on dell keyloggers

The really strange part of it is that Dell Laptops are manufactured in Asia. What security is in place to prevent our enemies from remotely logging info off of govt owned laptops...

Another question comes to mind. It may also be possible that such a simple device cuold act as a keyboard wedge and enter commands as if from the keyboard.
