    Nothing wireless here.

    And my CAT6 is shielded and grounded. And mostly in Al conduit, not inside walls.

    Updating won't fully resolve the problem:
    You need to buy a lock box to store the keyboard in when not in use. Plus a hood to place over the keyboard when in use.:argh::gack:

    No wireless too, and it saved the cost of battery as a byproduct...

    razer too as well is vulnerable and no-one seam to care, I uninstalled that driver and soft since it requires to call home for it to even work. Whenever they find such vulnerabilities they wait ages to patch them or they simple ignore them
    probably gaming soft is the worst in therms of security
