Description

Conexant Systems mictray/mictray64 task, as used on HP Elite, EliteBook, ProBook, and ZBook systems, leaks sensitive data (keystrokes) to any process via a LowLevelKeyboardProc Windows hook. This data is leaked via unintended channels: debug messages accessible to any process that is running in the current user session, and filesystem access to C:\Public\MicTray.log by any process.
