Are you using Logitech's wireless keyboard or mouse? If so, your computer is at risk of being attacked by the "MouseJack" vulnerability. Devices are pre-sold in 2016 and some devices after this year are at high risk of being attacked through this vulnerability.
According to Sean Hollister's report, the MouseJack vulnerability will allow hackers to hack into Logitech's USB receiving device connected to the user's computer. They can connect to the device and send any keyboard signals to the computer. Just by controlling the keyboard, hackers can download malware or wipe your computer.
This issue was reported in 2016. To fix it, Logitech has released a firmware update. However, Logitech has never recovered any products that have been sold to the market. Even if the user has purchased a few products in the past few years, it can still be approved. This update is for some reason not included on Logitech's device management software on a computer for a number of reasons. And users have no choice but to find and download for updates.
To patch this security issue, you can visit the Logitech homepage, download the appropriate update and install it. For USB Dongles devices, updates are available for both Windows and Mac PCs. There is also a separate update to install if you are using the Logitech G900 gaming mouse.
If you are not sure whether you have installed the new update, just download the software and run it. The update will let you know if all devices have been updated.
As Logitech notes, this update also updates the firmware for some of its wireless keyboards. Therefore, you must make sure that they are always connected during the update process.
