Leap Motion Controller exploit demoed by Malwarebytes


Malwarebytes has shown off an exploitable security vulnerability in the recently launched Leap Motion Controller gesture based PC peripheral.

Released in the UK late last month, the Leap Motion Controller allows people to control their computers with hand and finger movements, claiming to sense how you move your hands "the way you move them naturally". It retails for £70.

Demoing the attack in a Youtube video, Malwarebytes showed how the device can be exploited so that a Windows user account login can be unlocked with the flick of the wrist if they have installed an app named "Signwave Unlock Free".
