Potential volnerability, wireless.
"Hopefully, everyone is aware of the potential security vulnerabilities
inherent in wireless networking. However, you also must consider the
whole range of wireless devices -- including keyboards. A recent
advisory to Bugtraq talks about how easy it is to modify a receiver to
extend the range of wireless keyboards, which then can be used to snoop
on other users with the same device. The result? A remote attacker can
sniff users' keystrokes. So the next time you're tempted by that fancy,
new Logitech wireless keyboard, consider an infrared alternative. It's
harder to intercept the infrared line of sight signal."
