The South Korean electronics giant Samsung may be spying on its own customers, using a program pre-installed on laptops that secretly monitors every keystroke.
In a guest posting on NetworkWorld, Toronto security researcher Mohammed Hassan described how he found keylogging software on a brand-new Samsung laptop he bought last month. He deleted it and continued to use the laptop, until it developed other problems.
Hassan returned it to the retailer and came home with a slightly better Samsung model — which also turned out to have the keylogging software.
He called Samsung telephone support, and after some buck-passing, finally spoke to a supervisor, who first tried to blame it on Microsoft.
Told that didn’t make sense, the supervisor then admitted to Hassan that the software is there to “monitor the performance of the machine and to find out how it is being used.”
The software was a commercial product called StarLogger, which its maker says is “completely undetectable and starts up whenever your computer starts up.”
It also captures screenshots at predetermined intervals. Both the keystrokes and the screenshots can be secretly emailed to designated addresses.
Hassan says there was no notification that his keystrokes were being logged.
But it seems that Samsung may not have been trying very hard to conceal StarLogger. The software was hiding in plain sight at the file path “c:\windows\SL\”.
Samsung’s behavior is probably illegal, and definitely unethical. As Hassan puts it, “the issue has legal, ethical, and privacy implications for both the businesses and individuals who may purchase and use Samsung laptops.”
Five years ago, the Sony BMG music company was found to be illegally inserting malware on music CDs that would install “rootkits” into Windows laptops to prevent them from “ripping” MP3 files. Sony BMG eventually paid $575 million in fines and payouts connected with multiple lawsuits.
To anyone who’s recently purchased a Samsung laptop, make sure you scan it thoroughly with antivirus software, and also search its Windows folder for a directory called “SL.”
If you find something like what Hassan described, you might want to consider contacting NetworkWorld — and possibly a lawyer.
Samsung representatives had not responded to NetworkWorld’s queries by Wednesday afternoon (March 30).
A study of newly installed, hands-free faucets at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, all equipped with the latest electronic-eye sensors to automatically detect hands and dispense preset amounts of water, shows they were more likely to be contaminated with one of the most common and hazardous bacteria in hospitals compared to old-style fixtures with separate handles for hot and cold water.
Demonstrating an important milestone for the longevity and utility of implanted brain-computer interfaces, a woman with tetraplegia using the investigational BrainGate system continued to control a computer cursor accurately through neural activity alone more than 1,000 days after receiving the BrainGate implant, according to a team of physicians, scientists, and engineers developing and testing the technology at Brown University, the Providence VA Medical Center, and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Results from five consecutive days of device use surrounding her 1,000th day in the device trial appeared online March 24 in the Journal of Neural Engineering.
