In order to prevent eavesdropping, most vendors encrypt the data being transmitted by wireless keyboards, however it appears that the same security was not built into the mouse communications. The communication between the dongle and mice tested by the research team showed that there was no authentication in place, leaving the dongle unable to determine the difference between commands originating from the user’s mouse and those coming from an attacker. This results in the ability for an attacker to pretend to be a mouse and transmit their own packets to the dongle.
Bastille’s IoT security solution gives companies full situational awareness and control of all wireless devices within their facility. Its technology tracks the location and activity of all internet-connected and wireless devices on premise. As a result, security executives can prevent the theft of valuable information and protect employees throughout their environment. Bastille deploys a mesh network of proprietary radio frequency (RF) sensors throughout the customer facility. These sensors are able to track the location and emissions of all wireless devices within their environment. Bastille’s system sends updates and alerts to end-users to help immediately stop ongoing intrusions and threats.
