Re: Security options

You did not read the article. This was targeting primarily laptops.

I have seen multiple times laptops coming back from conferences and trade shows with keyloggers installed. The usual procedure (in sane IT shops) is to zap anything and everything that has been to a list of countries + any trade show where people from said countries where in attendance. This would work against conventional spyware. Against this - I doubt it.
