wireless keyboard/mouse sniffing kit
when you buy a wireless keyboard or mouse, you are pretty much doomed. by the way, bluetooth is also in danger.
KeySweeper is a stealthy Arduino-based device, camouflaged as a functioning USB wall charger, that wirelessly and passively sniffs, decrypts, logs and reports back (over GSM) all keystrokes from any Microsoft wireless keyboard in the vicinity.
All keystrokes are logged online and locally. SMS alerts are sent upon trigger words, usernames or URLs, exposing passwords. If unplugged, KeySweeper continues to operate using its internal battery and auto-recharges upon repowering. A web based tool allows live keystroke monitoring.
Description: KeyKeriki v2.0 was first presented to the public at the security conference CanSecWest 2010. The device consists out of two different radio modules and some ARM Cortex based micro controller board. In contrary to the 27MHz Version of Keykeriki it has the ability to inject data. So it allows remote code execution on 2.4GHz new generation keyboards. The code is a first release and is limited on purpose to this scenario (keyboard sniffing and remote command execution). Hopefully we can extend its layout to evolve to a software based, inexpensive software defined radio for 2.4GHz frequencies.
