Have you ever seen a panel van outside your house and thought something along the lines of, "the NSA is capturing my keystrokes wirelessly... I just know it!" If you have this post might make your head explode, so read on at your peril.
Two smart guys working in Switzerland, Martin Vuagnoux and Sylvain Pasini, figured out a way to decode the electromagnetic radiation that comes off of keyboards as you are typing from up to 65 feet away. This means they could theoretically know every single thing that you type into your computer. I wonder if the government has known how to do this for a long time already?
More after the jump...
If you are truly paranoid you could ensure that no one could wirelessly keylog you by sitting in a faraday cage of course. Without knowing more, or being able to read the research paper, I can only assume that it would be tough to decode what people are typing in an office, as so many signals would be bouncing around. But perhaps each keyboard has a unique signal? I really don't know, but even if it doesn't have much of a practical purpose, it is still cool!
