Microsoft Wireless Keyboard "Encryption" Cracked...

...if you can call it "encryption". From the description:


Max Moser and Philipp Schrödel say that decryption was very easy because the devices use a simple XOR mechanism for encryption and the keys are only one byte long.


WTF? I know Microsoft has gotten a reputation for inept security, but that inept?
