Wireless keyboard and mouse devices from multiple vendors use proprietary wireless protocols that are not properly secured.
CWE-311: Missing Encryption of Sensitive Data
Multiple wireless input devices (keyboard and mouse) use a proprietary wireless protocol on the 2.4 GHz ISM band that lacks proper encryption. An attacker within wireless transmission range can inject keystrokes or read keystroke data, or cause the victim's device to pair with a new input device. Wireless range on these models varies but is typically a few meters within a home.
An attacker within wireless transmission range can inject keystrokes on the victim's device, or cause the victim's device to pair with a new input device.
