Several vulnerabilities were found in the firmware of the Logitech wireless dongles that can allow a skilled hacker to take control of your computer sending keystrokes through the wireless dongles.

The attach is possible even if the receiver was designed for a mouse or a presenter.

The attach is not so naive and requires specialised hardware but, better be careful than sorry.

The update fixes the problem. A list of all the affected receivers is on the support site of Logitech. If you have not time to check just download the utility here: , plug the receiver and run it: the utility will detect the receiver and decide if an update is due or not.

Stay safe 🙂
