Keylogger found in keyboard driver of 475 HP notebook models

//Keylogger found in keyboard driver of 475 HP notebook models
Oops – accidental mistakes are something that have happened to all of us at some point, but I don’t want to hear oops when it comes to keyloggers which are “accidentally” preinstalled on computers. Nevertheless, 475 models of Hewlett-Packard notebooks, mobile thin clients and mobile workstations had a keylogger wrapped inside a keyboard driver.

It’s bad enough that a keylogger is found to be lurking on HP computers at all, but to happen twice in one year is ludicrously pathetic. Back in May, HP had to issue a fix after researchers discovered a keylogger monitoring keystrokes in an audio drivers installed on nearly 30 models of HP computers.
