Beware of a hacking risk when using a wireless keyboard.
As a Wired.com writer explains, a nearby hacker can tap into your wireless keyboard.
A savvy hacker can:
Snoop what you are typing (passwords, email addresses, credit card numbers, etc), and
Inject keystrokes at a rate of 1,000 words per minute, which can hijack your computer with commands like uploading private information or opening a backdoor that the hacker can exploit later.
So if you are security conscious, please be aware of the risks of using wireless keyboards in an office building, apartment complex, or coffee shop where hackers could be close by.
Bluetooth devices are more secure since they use a pairing/approval access method, but are still susceptible to some hackers.
We suggest never typing passwords and credit card numbers on any wireless keyboard.
