You may have read or heard that researchers from Bastille Security found a potential vulnerability in Logitech’s Unifying receiver. The Unifying receiver allows you to connect multiple compatible keyboards and mice to a laptop or desktop computer with a single USB receiver.
Bastille Security approached us regarding their work. We have been in regular communication with them since and together have discussed their findings.
Bastille Security identified the vulnerability in a controlled, experimental environment. The vulnerability would be complex to replicate and would require physical proximity to the target. It is therefore a difficult and unlikely path of attack.
We have nonetheless taken Bastille Security’s work seriously and developed a firmware fix. If you have concerns, and would like to ensure this vulnerability is eliminated, you can follow these steps:
Instructions to update the Unifying firmware on Windows
Instructions to update the Unifying firmware on Mac
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.
