Samsung: Keylogging Accusations False
PERSONAL PRIVACYApril 8, 2011
Samsung has refuted claims that some of its laptops came loaded with a keylogger. The statement follows an internal investigation launched by Samsung after a report claiming that the spyware was installed on two of its models. The report was based on a security consultant's findings after he had performed a series of virus scans, Digital Trends reports. The keylogging software is publicly available. It records computer users' keystrokes and can send information to a third party without the users' knowledge, the report states. An additional, independent investigation confirmed that the keylogging finding was false.
