Interesting but inaccurate. That paper states:

"... get the required leakage information from the ground wires at the remote end of VGA, USB or Ethernet cables."

Ethernet cables do not *have* any ground wires (unless we go back to the days of coax Ethernet).

I also question whether what is claimed could be carried out in anything other than a strictly controlled experiment that would never occur in real life.
