New Key Stroke logging threat


This device, which can record up to 130 thousand keystrokes, fits between the back of the PC and the keyboard cable. Once installed, it can capture anything that is typed on the key board - passwords, messages, etc. It was used to break the Sumitomo Bank’s wire transfer capability. The money was eventually recovered.

I love that the Bank's solution to the problem is to super glue the keyboard plugs into the back of the computers!
