Smartphone Can Pose Security Risk Sitting Next To a Computer

This story really caught my eye because I just couldn't believe that a smartphone can cause trouble while just “looking pretty.” Apparently, if it sits next to your computer long enough, it will log your keystrokes and learn your patterns of typing.

This isn't much of a big deal as long as your phone doesn't get hacked. However, new ways of invading people’s privacy erupt all the time. You have to be very careful, and seek out ways to keep your computer free from threats often. This will be an issue, especially with keylogging becoming as popular as it is right now. 

The study referred to in this post was sponsored by the Georgia Institute of Technology.
