I saw an article online that says keyloggers are being included from the factory in new laptop computers: http://www.stumbleupon.com/s/#2FbfAD/ha ... ogger.html

Is this true, are we being spied on?

That is a well-known hoax that has been around since 2005 in several forms, usually naming Dell as the brand involved.

The pictures and some of the tech information were lifted from a Dan's Data review (published in March 2000) of the KeyGhost Security Keyboard. In the review you can see the original pictures of the keylogger circuitry that is inside the KeyGhost Security Keyboard.

Bottom line: There is nothing to see here, please move along... <g> Scott.
