Criminals Keylogging Kiosks

Beware using public Internet kiosks. CNN warns of a criminal who collected usernames and passwords at Kinko's stores:


"For more than a year, unbeknownst to people who used Internet terminals at Kinko's stores in New York, Juju Jiang was recording what they typed, paying particular attention to their passwords. Jiang had secretly installed, in at least 14 Kinko's copy shops, software that logs individual keystrokes. He captured more than 450 user names and passwords, and used them to access and open bank accounts online."
