    My MSI laptop does not have the standard, round plug with maybe a pin in the middle. It's got a square connector similar to a USB port. So, now I am really concerned. I've have solar panels at my house, and the monitoring unit for the solar panels communicates digitally with inverters via the power lines (much like the powerline ethernet adapters). The monitoring unit is also connected to the cloud via my WiFi. So, I just realized, I have a data path established to the electric distribution in my house established by the solar panel monitoring unit which is connected to the internet. I don't know what all the pins do in the rectangular connection from the power supply to my laptop. Do any of them have digital capability? Oh no! What can I do to keep a hacker from getting into my solar monitoring unit and pushing a virus through it onto my AC wiring in my house and then into my laptop through the power supply that has the unique rectangular connection to my laptop?

    Perhaps a new computer might be better.

    Check pricing!

    Perhaps NO computer & computing device would be best!
    That could cure most related paranoia!

    No data flows through the 3.5mm headphone jack, only analog audio signals. Therefore, I would say it would be impossible to infect a computer through the 3.5mm headphone jack.
    Remember Acoustic Modems?

    A -> D and D -> A

    Oh, no! More hysteria!

    So Tesla Cars could in theory rise up against us, they have bidirectional data lines in the charging cables?, I need to line my baseball cap with copper foil.
