Why does an Android keyboard need to see your camera and log files – and why does it phone home to China?


Where was your USB or bluetooth keyboard made? Is it China? Now, what would you do if there was malware built into your keyboard that could secretly activate itself at random times and also gathered and forwarded your info? Do you know how to decode a USB connection stream and monitor it for this kind of weird activity? Me neither, but that's my next security project for home; what are my Chinese keyboards doing when I'm not looking? Please continue typing, people. Nothing to fear, so far.
