Researchers from Bastille Security recently found potential vulnerabilities in products from a number of mouse manufacturers, including two potential vulnerabilities with Logitech’s Unifying receiver and two with the G900 gaming mouse. The Unifying receiver allows you to connect multiple compatible keyboards and mice to a laptop or desktop computer with a single USB receiver. The Logitech G900 is a professional grade gaming mouse.Bastille Security approached us regarding their work, and we’ve been in regular communication with them since to discuss their findings. Bastille Security identified the vulnerabilities in a controlled, experimental environment. The vulnerabilities would be complex to replicate and would require a hacker to be physically close to a target. It’s therefore an unlikely path of attack. To our knowledge, we have never been contacted by any consumer with the issues reported by Bastille. We nonetheless take Bastille Security’s work - and our customers’ security - seriously. We have already developed firmware updates to address two vulnerabilities, one for the Unifying receiver and one for the G900 gaming mouse. We expect to have firmware updates to address the two remaining vulnerabilities soon. Customers who want to make sure their firmware is up to date can download the updates below. The one additional update will be available soon.
