      Why you should really, really update your Logitech wireless dongle

      MouseJack never really went away

      ..Logitech says never actually recalled any products after the original hack in 2016:

      Logitech evaluated the risk to businesses and to consumers, and did not initiate a recall of products or components already in the market and supply chain. We made the firmware update available to any customers that were particularly concerned, and implemented changes in products produced later.

      MouseJack affected devices from Dell, HP, Lenovo and Microsoft too, and possibly others that used the same Nordic and Texas Instruments chips and firmware for their wireless receivers..
