I should mention that if you're paranoid, are a high-value targeted
individual, or simply have a psycho on your butt, you may want to do a
good check of such a dongle with a ohmmeter or scope.

Or even better, wire your own.

It's a wonderful place to hide a keylogger.  :)


I have a couple of these in my "JJ's Meseum of Dodgy Devices."

Thankfully I didn't have to pay for them myself, but they were graciously
snuck into my inventory of parts by secret admirers.  So very kind of
