HP has an awful history of 'accidentally' leaving keyloggers onto its customers' laptops. At least two times this year, HP laptops were caught with Please login or register to see this link. or Please login or register to see this link. applications.
I was following a Please login or register to see this link. made by a security researcher claiming to have found a built-in keylogger in several HP laptops, and now he went public with his findings.
A security researcher who goes by the name of ZwClose Please login or register to see this link. a keylogger in several Hewlett-Packard (HP) laptops that could allow hackers to record your every keystroke and steal sensitive data, including passwords, account information, and credit card details.
The Keylogger was found embedded in the SynTP.sys file, a part of Synaptics touchpad driver that ships with HP notebook computers, leaving more than 460 HP Notebook models vulnerable to hackers.
Although the keylogger component is disabled by default, hackers can make use of available open source tools for bypassing User Account Control (UAC) to enable built-in keylogger "by setting a registry value."
Here’s the location of the registry key: HKLM\Software\Synaptics\%ProductName% HKLM\Software\Synaptics\%ProductName%\Default
The researcher reported the keylogger component to HP last month, and the company acknowledges the presence of keylogger, saying it was actually "a debug trace" which was left accidentally, but has now been removed.
The company has released a Driver update for all the affected HP Notebook Models. If you own an HP laptop, you can look for updates for your model. The list of affected HP notebooks can be found at the Please login or register to see this link. .
This is not the very first time when a keylogger has been detected in HP laptops. In May this year, a built-in keylogger was found in an Please login or register to see this link. that was silently recording all of its users' keystrokes and storing them in a human-readable file.

Please login or register to see this link. online Please login or register to see this link. claim that the MantisTek GK2 mechanical keyboard's configuration software is sending data to an Alibaba server. One of the reports even includes an Please login or register to see this link. , which seems to include typed keys.
The MantisTek GK2 is a cheap RGB mechanical keyboard from China that costs half as much (or less) as the Please login or register to see this link. from better known companies. Multiple gadgets that come from China seem to have either Please login or register to see this link. or Please login or register to see this link. caused by collecting user data without consumers' explicit permission. The MantisTek GK2 seems to be one of those products.
The main issue seems to be caused by the keyboard’s “Cloud Driver,” which sends information to IP addresses tied to Alibaba servers. Alibaba sells cloud services, so the data isn’t necessarily being sent to Alibaba, the company, but to someone else using an Alibaba server.
The data being sent—in plaintext, no less—has been identified as key presses. This should worry people who bought this keyboard, because that could include email addresses, logins, and even passwords they may have typed at one point or another.
How To Stop The Keylogger
The first way to stop the keyboard from sending your key presses to the Alibaba server is to ensure the MantisTek Cloud Driver software isn’t running in the background.
The second method to stop the data collection is to block the CMS.exe executable in your firewall. You could do this by adding a new firewall rule for the MantisTek Cloud Driver in the “Windows Defender Firewall With Advanced Security.”
If you want a one-click method, you can also download the free Please login or register to see this link. network monitoring tool. GlassWire will show you all the apps making connections to the internet in the “Alerts” tab and let you block those connections in the “Firewall” tab. It can also be used for other types of connections, such as all the connections Windows 10 makes to Microsoft’s servers even when you have most or all data tracking disabled.
These days, most products are made in China, but usually some other local company acts as an intermediary to ensure that the product is developed to specification and without other "features" that shouldn't be there. However, this additional protection goes out of the window when people decide to purchase directly from Chinese manufacturers via Chinese marketplaces. Not all products are going to have privacy or security issues, but extra caution is warranted.

Sunt interesat si eu de un bot sau o sursa pentru generare de trafic safe catre youtube. Nu ma intereseaza sa trimit direct 100k traffic intr-o zi dar 1500 imi ajunge . Poate stiti un bot ok care sa poata face asta , am incercat mai de mult cu chingling sau cum ii zice dar am inteles ca acuma cam da rateuri si ma intereseaza in special ca traficul sa nu vina din china. Poate aveti cunostinte despre asa ceva si imi puteti da cateva sfaturi. Multumesc anticipat !
