Samsung installs keylogger on its laptop computers

While setting up a new Samsung computer laptop with model number R525 in early February 2011, I came across an issue that mirrored what Sony BMG did six years ago. After the initial set up of the laptop, I installed licensed commercial security software and then ran a full system scan before installing any other software. The scan found two instances of a commercial keylogger called StarLogger installed on the brand new laptop. Files associated with the keylogger were found in a
c:\windows\SL
directory. According to a Starlogger description, StarLogger records every keystroke made on your computer on every window, even on password protected boxes. Source:http://www.networkworld.com/newsletters/sec/2011/032811sec2.html
