Stealing the sound of your password

Cyber-thieves may learn to 'hear' personal data by translating the tapping of keystrokes

Dan Fost, Chronicle Staff Writer

Monday, September 19, 2005


It may seem like the quiet click-clacking of computer keystrokes is nothing but background noise, but to a modern cyber-thief, the sound could translate into an array of stolen passwords.

Researchers at UC Berkeley have now proved that, using a device as simple as a $10 microphone, software can learn to recognize the sound of keystrokes as they're typed, and reveal the characters with 96 percent accuracy.
