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. :) http://www.keydemon.com/ps2_hardware_keylogger/ https://www.keelog.com/usb_hardware_keylogger.html http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-build-your-own-USB-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 them, and without even wanting credit. :) Cheers JJ -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
