Eckbox is van Eck Phreaking tool that interprets a radio signal emanating from a computer's monitor to recreate the image (in black and white) that is displayed on it. It could be used as a valuable security tool for testing otherwise secure computers or for developing hardware and software to counter this type of remote shoulder-surfing. It is not intended to be used for illegal purposes, and includes information on the hardware required.
