If you value your privacy, you need to know about keyloggers. These are malicious computer functions that allow hackers to track everything you type into your computer or laptop.

Criminals or malware can see the passwords you use to secure your computer and to log into sites like your bank or credit card. They can see the personal messages you type into your computer and the websites you visit. That's scary and, unfortunately, keyloggers are a serious problem that many people simply don't know exist.

Now, it turns out that the No. 2 computer maker, HP, accidentally shipped an unknown number of laptops with a keylogger vulnerability built right into it. The affected HP models include Folio G1, Elitebook, ProBook, ZBook and many others.

The keylogger vulnerability is found inside your laptop's audio driver package. The affected audio drivers are from the audio chipmaker Conexant.

Note: Security researchers said this keylogger vulnerability could also be found in non-HP laptops. So, make sure to keep reading for tips to delete this keylogger.
