    Some HP machines may have a keylogger installed

    Some HP machines have a keylogger installed with the Audio Driver, here’s how to disable it

    The keylogger, packaged with the Conexant HD Audio Driver Package in version 1.0.0.46 and earlier, has been discovered by researchers. With this audio driver comes a file, MicTray64.exe (or MicTray.exe for non-64-bit users), which has a Scheduled Task to run each time the user logs-on to their machine. Essentially, each time a key on the keyboard is pressed, it records it. The keystrokes are then stored in a plaintext file – definitely not a secure way of storing every key pressed on a machine.

    The keystroke log is stored at C:\users\public\MicTray.log.
