A keylogger file has been detected in several HP laptops, meaning that sensitive information, including private keys or passwords to Dash wallets, could be compromised.
An audio driver on several HP laptops, Conexant HD audio driver, has been found to contain a keylogger, which detects user keystrokes and stores them in a log file. Malware that has access to user's private documents would therefore also be able to acquire access to all keystrokes performed on the machine. Swiss security firm Modzero detected the keylogger activity and published these findings. Since then, a patch has been issued by HP that removes both the keylogger and log files, however it is unclear how much private data has been compromised so far...
