Device captures everything you type and sends it via your ethernet card to the Dept. of Homeland Security without your knowledge, consent or a search warrant - every time you log on to the internet!
I was opening up my almost brand new laptop, to replace a broken PCMCIA slot riser on the motherboard. As soon as I got the keyboard off, I noticed a small cable running from the keyboard connection underneath a piece of metal protecting the motherboard.
This was sent to me, not confirmed.

I’m pretty sure this was classified as ‘TinFoil’.
I always check for flash drives on any public computer.......background logging on a system with good security is less likely though IMO.
You're excerpting a rumor?
Old news for tinfoilers.
Important notice: KidLogger does contain adware modules.
Just an FYI for anyone interested.
Here’s another excerpt from your source.
“Do you believe that the United States was struck by terrorist attacks on Sept. 11th and do you think that the people behind the attacks were “Arabs”? Do you believe that the mastermind of the attacks was this fellow, Osama bin Laden, operating from a cave in Afghanistan? Do you think that the only way to stop terrorism is to hit the terrorists hard, hit them at their “bases”, in such remote places of the world like Afghanistan, and attack any nation who might sponsor them, like Iraq?”
“And what about the economy? Do you think that the recent fall of the stock market and the weakness in our economy have been directly caused by the Sept. 11th attacks? Ready to see how well you did? If you answered *yes* to any of these questions, you are most likely brainwashed. If you answered *yes* to more than one, or heaven forbid, all of them, you are definitely a goner and are hereby granted the title of *Imbecile*.”
No. Not true. There are a group of guys/girls (including me) that take this stuff apart down to the bit level. If that were the case it would be discovered in minutes of a release. TinFoil hat time....Now, let me say for the record that keyboard loggers exist, and may be secretly installed on a computer, but not by the manufacture. Use a good fire-wall, virus scanner, and common sense, and you will be secure.
This is the same as the the Potomac River terrorist truthers. OOOPPPSSS, my tinfoil slipped and the bad waves are corrupting my mind.
I will not believe it until the voice in my pants says to!

Work of this type requires a hot-air rework station and the SKILL to operate it ...
“The Moderators deleted an *excellent* debunk on this very item a few weeks back ... this thing is bogus.”
This is FUD stuff, I think, Swampsniper.

Is Big Brother logging your keystrokes?

In thread, see post by alnick
if true, some smart entepeneur will start a business disabling the link ...
Yes, this person is so important that DHS, the NSA, and the FBI all want to capture and analyze his every keystroke, 7 x 24 x 365.
In fact, “they” have an enormous secret facility on the grounds of Ft. Meade MD that employs 20,000 top secret analysts who watch and flag the keystroke patterns of millions of Americans and foreigners every day.
So be careful, your “keyboard” is connected by “suspicious wires” to a “secret DHS/NSA/FBI communications chip.”
Be careful out there!
>>> Is someone trying to immunize us to thinking it’s an Urban Legend before they install the real thing? <<<<<
Yeah, that must be it!
Every time I read something like this I feel more and more immunized to “the government” installing secret comm chips in my computer, my toaster, my HDTV, and my brain!
It’s coming! And I am immunized!
