A couple of weeks ago, Apple distributed a firmware update for their keyboards - the standalone ones, not the ones built into laptops. I remarked at the time (perhaps on this list?) that given a way for Apple to update the firmware ... was there a way for others with malicious intent? Well ... yes. http://www.blackhat.com/presentations/bh-usa-09/CHEN/BHUSA09-Chen-RevAppleFirm-PAPER.pdf reports on reverse-engineering a previous keyboard patch and producing a functional patch of his own.
