Abstract So you’ve got your firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-key-loggerssolidly installed. Think you’re safe? Think again. Researchers at the Universityof California, Berkeley, have shown they can retrieve up to 96 percent of thecharacters you type, just by recording your taps and clicks with a cheap microphone.Software developed at Berkeley learns to recognize the audio prints of differentkeys on the keyboard, which—though not as unique as the tones on a phonekeypad—are quite distinct. (To obtain such a high accuracy rate, the sameaudio data had to be fed into the software up to three times.)
