Using a public computer? Check for keyloggers first!

Tue, 2016-03-22 15:48

Whether you're using a public computer at McGill, a cafe, library, hotel, or even left your own laptop unattended for a short period of time, you should always inspect it to ensure that no keylogger devices have been attached. A keylogger is a tiny device that logs every key you press on your keyboard. It can capture personal messages, passwords, credit card numbers, and everything else you type.
