Keykeriki: wireless keyboard sniffer

Remote-Exploit.org is releasing Keykeriki, a wireless keyboard sniffer. The project is both open source hardware and software. you can download the files on their site. Right now you can’t get a pre made board, but they plan on releasing one soon. The system can be upgraded with “backpacks” or add on modules. One of these is going to be an LCD that displays the keystrokes of the keyboard you are sniffing. Another is supposed to serve as an interface to your iPhone.  Right now it has the ability to decode Microsoft wireless keyboards, but the Logitech pieces should be added soon.

  1. Other vendors decoding follow as soon we built the decoding into the firmware. the hardware can handle All common 27mhz frequencies used according to fcc search. i will put together a guide how to get samples from currently unsupported keyboards when i got the time. or simply help us :) greetings.. max. 2.4ghz will be a different receiver but might be nlin the work :)

  2. Is there any protection from this type of attack?
    Or should people be using on screen keyboards to type their passwords/cc infomration?

  3. Keep all your sensitive info in a single document, and then copy/paste the info instead of keying it?

  4. Did anyone else notice that the Z key was where they Y key ought to have been (at least according to a QWERTY layout, which the keyboard appears to be)?

  5. rofl

    what happened to good old fashioned wired keyboards?

    or is it to far into the future to be bothered by something attached to a cable?

  6. when I use public computers to check my email I’ll click out of the password field and type nonsense in the middle of entering my password.

  7. hey gayz, don´t be scared. the range of the keyboard is really short so if someone wants to sniff you has to get in your home ;)
