Samsung is not installing keylogger software on laptops

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2011

Yesterday we reported that someone had found some keylogger software on some new Samsung laptops. We knew it didn’t make sense for a popular brand to take that kind of risk and as it turns out, it was all a misunderstanding.

The confusion apparently comes from the fact that the VIPRE security software mistakenly identified Microsoft’s Slovene language folder (“SL”) as Starlogger. Samsung managed to recreate it from an empty c:\windows\SL folder, Bottom line is that Samsung laptops are safe.


Samsung shipping laptops with keylogger installed?

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2011

Samsung is a pretty popular laptop brand right now, but their reputation may be about to suffer due to claims that it is shipping brand new laptops with an active keylogger installed. According to a post on Networkworld by Mohamed Hassan, the StarLogger keylogger was found preinstalled and active on not just one, but two brand new Samsung laptops.

Would any company be stupid enough to do this and risk a serious PR backlash? According to Hassan, the first was found when he installed security software on his new laptop. That laptop was later returned because of a video driver issue, but the replacement Samsung that he purchased also had the same keylogger on it. One thing that seems suspect is this. Why wouldn’t he have returned the first right away after he found the keylogger? He wasn’t mad enough?
