Bepaalde draadloze toetsenborden van verschillende fabrikanten, waaronder Anker, EagleTec, General Electric, Hewlett-Packard, Insignia, Kensington, Radio Shack en Toshiba, zijn volgens het Amerikaanse bedrijf "Bastille" kwetsbaar. De toetsenborden kunnen volgens dat bedrijf tot op wel 80 meter worden afgeluisterd. Een 'snuffelaar' kan door die kwetsbaarheid onder andere creditcardnummers, wachtwoorden en andere privacygevoelige informatie verkrijgen.

KeySniffer is a set of security vulnerabilities affecting non-Bluetooth wireless keyboards from eight vendors. The wireless keyboards susceptible to KeySniffer use unencrypted radio communication, enabling an attacker up to several hundred feet away to eavesdrop and record all the keystrokes typed by the victim. This means an attacker can see personal and private data such as credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, security question answers and other sensitive or private information all in clear text. The equipment needed to do the attack costs less than $100 putting it in reach of many teenage hackers. Learn more at www.keysniffer.net
