USB Phone charger keylogger

Security reasearcher Samy Kamkar has recently released his own version of USB phone chargers (KeySweeper) that can sniff out, log and send keystrokes from wireless keyboards. Don't consider the charger as a dummy one, it can charge your phone too.

Samy used Arduino gear in the USB phone charger to log and send keystrokes back to the hacker from wireless keyboards. But the device is only able to sniff out keystrokes from Microsoft wireless keyboards.

Here is the YouTube Video of KeySweeper from Samy:
