Some HP Laptops Discovered To Be Collecting User Info With Keylogger

Conexant’s MicTray64.exe is installed with the Conexant audio driver package and registered as a Microsoft Scheduled Task to run after each user login. The program monitors all keystrokes made by the user to capture and react to functions such as microphone mute/unmute keys/hotkeys. Monitoring of keystrokes is added by implementing a low- level keyboard input hook [1] function that is installed by calling SetwindowsHookEx().
