Warning – Keylogger Device on Public PC’s

WARNING! BE CAREFUL WHENEVER YOU’RE USING A PUBLIC COMPUTER (MOST LIKELY AT INTERNET CAFES, ETC..  ).  CHECK THE BACK OF THE PC AND SEE IF THE BLACK DEVICE BELOW IS THERE…. IF SO, DO NOT USE IT!!!

A new storing device that fits at the end of the keyboard cable connecting to the PC is designed to save all typed keys in it, or more popularly known as a “keylogger”.

Mostly used in net cafes, exhibitions, hotels and airports. Be careful in entering bank accounts, credit card numbers and passwords online or any other important sites… After you leave, it will be easy to open your account again as all that you have typed have been saved in the black device. No problems for those who use the pc for gaming purpose or cad drawings only.

Therefore, you should check the PC for any suspicious gadget behind it before using the net in public places for important sites. Better be safe than sorry. Or better yet, bring your own bluetooth keyboard lol.
