Ouch! Encrypted communications between your computer and peripherals have to be impractically difficult to crack. The encryption scheme described in “Security firm cracks encryption for Microsoft’s wireless keyboards – heise Security” is beyond pathetic. I hope other manufacturers have more reasonable encryption schemes. In the mean time, don’t type anything on a Microsoft wireless keyboard you wouldn’t want to see published like, say, your bank account password. Disgraceful!
