Hewlett-Packard Pre-Installed Keylogger

Speak With A Security Expert Now

A bug was discovered in the Synaptics Touchpad driver that could be exploited by criminals to record all the keystrokes of a user, including usernames, passwords, and other privileged information. The Synaptics Touchpad driver is used in the majority of Hewlett-Packard (HP) laptops and as such HP has issued updates for over 170 commercial grade products and 290 consumer products. Hp is the only company to release updates for this issue but the Synaptics Touchpad driver is used by other companies, so more vendor updates can be expected. This bug is not currently being exploited in the wild but it can be stated with medium confidence that threat actors will quickly incorporate it into their tactics due to the release of technical details and the wide number of affected devices.

What should you do about it
