    I'm glad that I use wired keyboards and mice. I wonder how many users even considered that using wireless components was adding to their attack surface. It's scary to think that this kind of technology could be put into almost any electrical device, especially the equipment supplied by Internet, phone, and television companies.

    IMO, this thread doesn't belong in the malware section. Privacy problems was a much better fit for the subject.
