In 2016, researchers from Bastille Security 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 were in regular communication with them 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 developed firmware updates to address the vulnerabilities.
Customers who want to make sure their firmware is up to date can download the updates below.
For Logitech’s G900 gaming mouse:
For Logitech’s Unifying receiver:
Note: if you have K780 MULTI-DEVICE WIRELESS KEYBOARD, K375s MULTI-DEVICE KEYBOARD, WIRELESS TOUCH KEYBOARD K400 PLUS, MK850 PERFORMANCE or ILLUMINATED LIVING-ROOM KEYBOARD K830 connected with your Unifying receiver, the tool will guide you to update the firmware on the keyboard as well.
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 customer with such an issue related to this potential vulnerability.
