For those of us who have invested in a wireless keyboard, this blog, might be a bit concerning as recent reports have suggested that they could be vulnerable to hackers who are able to see every word typed from hundreds of feet away.
First some good news : Bluetooth Wireless keyboards are generally encrypted, so anyone trying to intercept what was being transmitted from the keyboard to the computer would be unable to decipher it.
Now, the not-so-good news : However, in an investigation that was carried out by cyber security company Bastille, they found that hackers could clearly intercept everything that was being typed on certain low-cost wireless keyboards.
You really don’t need me to let you know that unencrypted wireless keyboards may allow hackers access to passwords, bank details, and anything else typed.
