Keylogger Paranoia

Almost had some great tinfoil today, via Dave Farber’s list, which reports that an anonymous (Russian?) website claims there’s a keylogger built into Dell laptops. Comes complete with pictures of the chip and FOIA refusal to comment from DHS!

Alas, follow-ups report that both engadget and snopes.com say this is utterly false, as do people who’ve actually taken Dells apart.

So just worry about this instead.
