MS KB3152550: Update to Improve Wireless Mouse Input Filtering

Info Nessus Plugin ID 90511


The remote Windows host is missing an update to wireless mouse input filtering.


The remote Windows host is missing an update to the wireless mouse input filtering functionality. The missing update enhances security by filtering out QWERTY key packets in keystroke communications issued when receiving communication from USB wireless dongles. The update resolves a vulnerability that allows a local attacker in the physical proximity of the wireless mouse range to inject keyboard HID packets into Microsoft wireless mouse devices through the use of USB dongles.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
