Nearly thirty different Hewlett-Packard Windows PC models may be recording every keystroke their owners make and storing them in a human-readable file accessible to any user on the PC. Oh, boy.
Switzerland-based security company Modzero recently discovered a keylogger present in an audio program in HP PCs called MicTray. Modzero reported it on their blog early Thursday morning.
You can also find a complete list of affected HP PC models in the company’s security advisory. Affected models include PCs from the HP Elitebook 800 series, HP ProBook 600 and 400 series’, the EliteBook Folio G1, and others. The program has existed on HP PCs since at least late 2015, Modzero says.
