Privacy, Security, Encryption Hearkening back to the Sony Rootkit brouhaha from a few years ago, a security researcher is claiming in a Network World article that he detected factory-installed keyloggers in two brand new Samsung Laptops. Samsung has made no official response, but a tech support supervisor contacted by the author said that the keystroke logging software was installed by Samsung to "monitor the performance of the machine and to find out how it is being used."

My mate has a beautiful QX410 I bought last November...
The first thing I will do when I come home is to look for this keylogger.

Samsung, here I come!

Nowadays you really can't trust anybody anymore!
Stupid world we live in...
