I use a wireless keyboard at work and think it's pretty cool. I was thinking of getting one for my desktop computer at home, but my friend was telling me that they're a security risk because since they're wireless, someone can hack into your keyboard and can know what you're typing. So if you type something personal like a CC# or SS#, then they can obtain that information.
Is this true? Is it unsafe for me to buy a wireless keyboard for my computer at home?

the person would have to have the biggest attena ... be very good and encryptions and still be very close... the range of a wireless usb stick is about 5 meters..the key board also has about 5ms ... that 10 ms of range you have with a keyboard someone would have to be very very close and have the right kind of connection to it... its all if and buts I wouldnt worry about it
