Perhaps it's time to ban the PS/2 port along with the serial and parallel
port and just use USB? ;0

Subject: [unisog] Keyboard sniffers

We have all seen some of the recent news articles of security compromises at
banks and such using hardware keyboard sniffers.  I was wondering if there
were any programs or kernel modules (linux and/or windows) that detects when
a keyboard is unplugged and will then log something to syslog or the
system/security event viewer?

Thanks in advance.
