You need to update your Logitech wireless dongle now

If you own a wireless Logitech device, we’d suggest you update those wireless dongles now. A few years ago, hackers discovered that they can exploit a vulnerability in these dongles, allowing them to remotely control a PC. And according to The Verge, some products Logitech are still shipping today could still be vulnerable to the same remote access hack called MouseJack. Some of the products include Logitech’s Unifying Receiver and G900 wireless gaming mouse. The company did roll out patches that fixed the remote access vulnerability back in 2016. But we don’t know when (or if) these changes were applied to devices that were in the factory. You might have purchased an unpatched model. In a statement issued to The Verge, Logitech said, “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.”

Just to be sure, we highly recommend you install the patch. If you have any of Logitech’s Unifying receivers, you can download the patch for Windows here and the one for Mac here. If you have the G900 gaming mouse, you can download the patch for Windows here. Once downloaded, simply follow the on-screen instructions to apply the patches. Logitech intends to push an additional update that fixes a related vulnerability next month. Make sure you have the necessary Logitech software installed and that you install updates as they arrive.

Logitech still seems to be keen on purchasing other accessories makers. This time around, the company has reportedly set its sights on Plantronics. Logitech has reportedly offered as much as US $2.2 billion to purchase the headset maker. And if the deal pushes through, we should hear about it in the coming week. This acquisition will be Logitech’s most expensive purchase to date. But it would also boost the company’s lineup of PC and mobile accessories. According to Reuters, both companies are trying to reduce manufacturing costs and hope to lessen the impact of the Trump administration’s tariffs on Chinese imports into the US. Working together is one way to do just that.

Plantronics main business focuses on Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, unified communications systems, wireless headsets, conferencing systems, and some software, which it sells to businesses and consumers. It also has fitness-focused accessories. The company claims the headphones worn by Neil Armstrong during his first moonwalk was made by Plantronics.

Logitech will buy Blue Microphones for US$117 million

Logitech is securing its place in the high-end audio recording market with its latest acquisition. The company just announced that it is buying Blue Microphones for US$117 million. It’ll be an all-cash transaction. Blue, which is known for creating USB condenser mics like the Snowball and Yeti, will be joining Logitech’s other brands like Astro Gaming, Jaybird, and Ultimate Ears.

In a blog post announcing the deal, Logitech wrote, “For Logitech, this is a new space. But, at the same time, it’s not at all. Gamers are already using our Logitech G webcams to stream. People are video calling with friends and family thanks to Logitech every day. And in business, our audio and video know-how is apparent every time a video meeting takes place at the office. Joining up with Blue and their microphone lines is a logical adjacent opportunity with great synergies.”

Logitech builds VR keyboard kit to make it easier to type while using the HTC Vive  

While you might be a good touch typist and have been able to do so in virtual reality, sometimes losing sight of the keys will throw you off. Logitech is hoping to make things easier for you with its new VR keyboard kit called the Logitech Bridge. This system works with the HTC Vive VR and makes use of a Vive tracking disk, a Logitech G gaming keyboard, and an accessory that links the two together. Once you have this set up, you’ll be able to see a 3D virtual keyboard that looks precisely like the one you’re using. There are even customization options on how the keyboard looks as well as custom keyboard layout. It’ll let you replace hotkeys or shortcuts with actual labeled buttons. If the game or app you’re using makes use of the Vive’s SteamVR software, the Bridge system will work with it.

Unfortunately, it won’t work with just any Logitech keyboard, you need to shell out US$150 for the concept. Yes, it’s still a concept now and it’s going out to 50 developers who are interested in trying it out. If you’re an interested developer, you can try and apply for one through this form. Applications will close on November 16.
