Hewlett Packard (HP) has said that it is extremely concerned about its wireless keyboard design, after a user's data appeared on a colleague's computer that was located in another building and supposedly out of range.
Last week vnunet.com reported how Per Arild Evjeberg and Per Erik Helle hit the headlines on Halloween after their HP keyboards switched on each other's computers in different buildings and started writing on each other's screens.
HP replaced the kit, but the problem still exists. Tore Särelind, product manager for HP Norway, said that the firm is taking the problem "deadly seriously", according to the Stavanger Aftenblad newspaper.
"Among other things we will check the suitability of the frequency we use. It is a so-called walkie-talkie frequency with a radius that can be difficult to limit," he explained.
HP wants to do an "on site" test in the area to determine whether there are special circumstances which might influence the reach of the keyboards.
One theory is that the keyboard's signal is too powerful, giving users little or no control over who receives typed information.
The company is even considering a product recall. More than 65,000 of the keyboards have been sold in Europe alone. The unit is also sold in the US, but in smaller numbers.
