Snooping through the power socket


news.bbc.co.uk

Power sockets can be used to eavesdrop on what people type on a computer.

Security researchers found that poor shielding on some keyboard cables means useful data can be leaked about each character typed.

By analysing the information leaking onto power circuits, the researchers could see what a target was typing.

The attack has been demonstrated to work at a distance of up to 15m, but refinement may mean it could work over much longer distances.

Now this is interesting, or worrying maybe


Wonder if using USB keyboards prevents this?

Or laptops obviously would circumvent this.

15 meters? If the government is that close they can probably read my mind anyways.
