    Sorry, only in german :

    HP: Business-Notebooks bringen ihren Keylogger gleich mit

    Der Computerkonzern HP hat über Jahre hinweg Notebooks ausgeliefert, die quasi ständig einen Keylogger mitlaufen ließen. Die von diesem mitgeschriebenen Eingaben konnten recht problemlos von den Geräten ausgelesen werden. Schuld war ein Treiber eines Drittherstellers.
    Aufgefallen ist die ganze Sache erst jetzt, als der Sicherheitsforscher Thorsten Schröder vom Schweizer Unternehmen Modzero einen Security-Audit durchführte. Dabei stellte sich heraus, dass die Entwickler beim externen Zulieferer Conexant wohl vergessen hatten, den Debug-Modus ihres Audio-Treibers abzuschalten, bevor die Software an HP ausgeliefert wurde. Und auch die Qualitätskontrolle bei HP reichte offenbar nicht, damit die Sache auffiel.

    Der Treiber lauscht unter anderem auf Tastatur-Eingaben, um beispielsweise reagieren zu können, wenn der Nutzer die Lautstärke mit den entsprechenden Tasten regulieren will. Allerdings wurden die Anschläge nach der Auswertung, ob hier ein relevantes Signal hereinkommt oder nicht dann nicht verworfen, sondern in eine Log-Datei geschrieben. Das ist bei der Entwicklung durchaus sinnvoll, um prüfen zu können, ob die Software wie gewünscht reagiert - muss aber vor der Auslieferung natürlich abgeschaltet werden.

    Alles wird geloggt...
    In dem vorliegenden Fall fand sich auf den Notebooks nun aber eine Datei namens MicTray.log wieder, in der jeder einzelne Tastenanschlag landete - natürlich inklusive aller Passwörter. Hinzu kam, dass die fragliche Datei in C:\Users\Public\ lag und somit von jeder Person oder auch Malware auslesbar war, die auch nur über den einfachsten Zugang zu dem System verfügte. Gelöscht wurde das File jeweils bei einem kompletten Neustart, was bei häufiger Verwendung des Suspend-Modus aber selten stattfinden kann.

    Bisher gibt es noch keine offizielle Problemlösung. Als Workaround kann man erst einmal eine Entfernung der Datei MicTray64.exe vom jeweiligen Rechner vornehmen, wodurch es dann aber zu funktionellen Einschränkungen kommt. Betroffen sind diverse Business-Notebooks von HP:

    I'm selling everything you need to use the HP Advanced Wireless Dock with the Elite X2. This includes the HP Advanced Wireless Dock (unused, missing the box), the Intel Tri-Band Wireless-AC 18260 module, and the HP WiGig Module with Bracket/Cable (844884-001). This is everything you need to take an Elite X2 with the dual-band wireless card and upgrade it to the tri-band wireless card and WiGIG capabilities, plus the WiGig dock. I'll sell all of this for $90 shipped. This is MUCH cheaper than if you were to purchase the parts separately (dock is $80ish on ebay, WiGIG module is about $40ish shipped from HP, and the Intel wireless module is about $30ish shipped.

    I was issues an HP Elite X2 at work with the dual band wireless module and the crappy USB-C dock. I purchased these parts with the intent to install on my own and use the WiGIG dock and then remove it all when I turned in the HP tablet at the end of the cycle... but the HP tablets ended up having compatibility issues with something at work and they moved me to an SP4 right after I bought all of this.

    Hit me up if you're interested. I'm listing it all on ebay soon.

    I have a G1 1012 and I am trying to determine if the HP Pen is capable of a long press on the top button that doesn't trigger pairing? The reason I ask is that MS have a new Cortana Lasso feature which allows you to select some text like a time or date and have Cortana recognise it and determine what to do with it?

    Hi, I've been through the tread, lots of very helpful stuff!

    I Still have 3 specific questions:

    1) Has anyone tried and successfully used a micro SD above 200GB? ie 256GB or 512 GB?

    With prices coming down, I'd like to take advantage of more room. Contacted HP technical support and they just parroted the “up to 200GB” mentioned in the summary spec.

    2) Has anyone successfully installed Wacom feel drivers for the pen? If so, what version?

    3) Also, if yes, are you using the HP pen or another pen like the bamboo smart?


    Apologies if these have been covered and I’ve missed them. There has been some mention of this in the thread, but I couldn’t identify anyone who definitively had installed the feel drivers and had them working.

    Both things would be significant improvements for me in the ways I use the machine.

    All help appreciated,

    Thanks,


    Roy.

    @Roy H if 64GB micro SD works, then any micro SD up to 2TB will.

    Great, worth a try of at least a 256 then, 512 might be beyond my budget ;-)

    If anyone has direct experience of the peformance of larger cards in an X2, I'd appreciate a heads up. Will mainly use for static docs though so should be ok.

    Cheers,

    R.

    I upgraded my Elite x2 G1 with a Samsung EVO 960 1TB drive. Works great and I'm hella impressed. I also got the WiGig card, bracket and antenna. I additionally got 3 WiGig docks.

    This unit is now my main driver at three different locations. It's awesome how it all just works... with 4K monitors and several USB drives... It's a crazy good solution.

    I will definitely get a G2 once it comes out as a maxed out system and sell this G1 unless my GF wants it.

    Again, I can't be more impressed with this tablet!

    Wishes:
    - Quadcore, even a slow one
    - Higher rez screen (fixed with G2)
    - More reliable connection to detachable keyboards (software problem probably)
    - Better speakers (fixed with G2)
    - A second USB-C port, basically a Spectre x2 with additional A port

    Three Elite X2 questions:
    1) If it has a Sim slot, does that mean it supports Verizon's 4G LTE? I ask b/c an e-bay seller has one with a sim slot, but he doesn't know for sure that it supports LTE. I know the Thinkpad 10 has a "phantom" sim slot on non-LTE models.
    2) Is it locked down for charging, like the Spectre X2-12? Or can you use a non-proprietary charger with it?
    3) Does it support Windows Hello.
    Apologies in advance if the questions are already answered in the thread. I've perused the thread and done some searches, but It yet found answers to these questions.
    Thanks in advance!
