Strange behavior of Corsair K100 keyboards is a bug, not a keylogger

0 13

As devices become smarter and more feature-rich, there are more possible places where things can go wrong. This seems to be what is behind the very strange behavior of the keyboards Corsair K100. For some users, these high-end keyboards repeat the texts they wrote several days ago. Not surprisingly, many of them panicked, raising concerns that their computers were being attacked by keyloggers (software that records keystrokes, which can be used, for example, to obtain passwords). According to Corsair, tens of thousands of K100 series keyboards have been sold, but only a very small number of users have experienced this behavior. It certainly does not mean the mind when one line of a very sensitive email appears again on your screen, which happened to one, and it is no wonder that more and more keyboard complaints are popping up on the internet .

It is not yet clear what is behind this, but Corsair denies the keylogger, and according to Corsair, there is no software in the keyboards to record keystrokes. The issue is now being investigated and all indications are that it is a bug in the macro recording feature. The company has already released the first firmware fix, which seems to have fixed the problems with the display of long written texts, but new bugs have appeared again. This is a very unpleasant fact for a keyboard for several thousand crowns.
