Hi, is Logitech's wireless mice still vulnerable to the MouseJack issue, or have they been patched yet?

Hello there,
 
Have you tried installing the latest Windows updates recently? Microsoft has issued a fix for Mousejacker via Windows update. 
 
 
Follow the steps below to install Windows updates
 
1. Open Windows Update by clicking the "Start" button.
2. In the search box, type Update, and then in the list of results, click "Windows Update" 
3. Select install latest updates 
 
Hope this helps!

Logitech: Not an easy attack

Logitech, in an email sent to FORBES ahead of publication, said it planned to issue a firmware update to its affected devices. But it claimed the attacks would not be simple to pull off. “Bastille Security identified the vulnerability in a controlled, experimental environment. The vulnerability would be complex to replicate and would require physical proximity to the target. It is therefore a difficult and unlikely path of attack,” said Asif Ahsan, senior director for engineering at Logitech.

“Logitech’s Unifying technology was launched in 2007 and has been used by millions of our consumers since. To our knowledge, we have never been contacted by any consumer with such an issue.”


I'm not able to find an update at, the logitech site, for the firmware later than 2014.

I also think it's highly improbable as an an attack vector. More like a proof of concept activity.

Thank you both for your response.

 

 

Thanks, though it's not a complete fix (as stated in the article) nor is it on all mice.

 

I'm not able to find an update at, the logitech site, for the firmware later than 2014.


I also think it's highly improbable as an an attack vector. More like a proof of concept activity.

So you basically think it's nothing to worry about?

 

Also, will all new Logitech mice be fixed? And will new windows 10 computers be protected from it also?

 

Thanks again.
