TL;DR:
Press 'g' on the keyboard, get the sequence: H f9 ' \ I num8 num3...


I'm not a superstitious one, but I did note that for a night that society considers last night as a "spooky" one, mine was quite uneventful. That is, until around midnight, when a ghost haunted my machine.

I am using a Microsoft Comfort Curve keyboard with a GX gaming Giala mouse. The mouse itself is a WTF, for a number of reasons: One, why would anybody need 8000 DPI; two, why would anybody want independent X-axis and Y-axis DPI; and three, why would anybody use this shit software. Seriously. Somewhere in the software, the string for the name of the registry key, "WheelScrollLines", somehow didn't get widened correctly. So, instead of finding "WheelScrollLines" under the key "HKCU:\Control Panel\Desktop" (where it should be), it is instead found under "HKCU:\潃瑮潲慐敮屬敄歳潴p", which is coincidentally what'd you get if you took the ASCII string "Control Panel\Desktop", converted it to bytes, and then converted those bytes into a Unicode string. Just... wat. It does have a lot of buttons, though. It's probably the only reason I still have this mouse.

Anyways, late last night I was jamming on my keyboard in my digital audio workstation, when I just happened by chance to enter what I will henceforth call "WTF-mode". In this mode, the LEDs in my mouse begin to flash, Windows will continually play the "device disconnected" sound, and the keyboard begins to wildly misbehave. Pressing the "q" key (middle-C on a piano) will press and hold several other random keys. Pressing any other key would do anything from opening the "mailto:" handler, opening up the magnifying glass, to opening up the help menu.

So here I am, just tweaking this cheesy 80s synth (3xPWM at 1x, 3x, and 5x frequencies, low-pass resonant filter with cutoff envelope), and suddenly I accidentally press caps-lock, and suddenly my mouse begins to flash, keyboard presses are random, random notes are playing, and random windows are popping up. I almost had a heart-attack! D:

Eventually I managed out of WTF-mode, but being the computer scientist that I am, I tried to deduce which keys were causing "WTF-mode". After a few apparent system hangs, I eventually narrowed it down to the keyboard sequence caps-lock and scroll-lock. Pressing these keys in sequence cause "WTF-mode" to toggle. I can completely lock up my keyboard and mouse by face rolling the keyboard in this mode, until either I reconnect the keyboard and mouse or I reset my system.

This morning, I spent some time investigating further. Below is a small win32 console program written in C++11, to help debug what events are being sent:

// wtfKeyboard.cpp
#include <cstdlib>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <signal.h>
#define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN
#define NOMINMAX
#include <Windows.h>

HRESULT printError(HRESULT);
HRESULT printError();

int main(int,char*[]) {
	// Get console input handle
	HANDLE hInput = GetStdHandle(STD_INPUT_HANDLE);
	if ( hInput == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE ) {
		printf("Unable to get input handle\n");
		return printError();
	}

	// Hook ctrl+C
	static bool running = true;
	signal(SIGINT, [](int){
		running = false;
	});

	// Main loop
	do {
		INPUT_RECORD event;
		DWORD eventsRead = 0;

		// Input loop
		while ( ReadConsoleInput(hInput, &event, 1, &eventsRead) && eventsRead > 0 && running ) {
			// Print timestamp
			SYSTEMTIME time;
			GetLocalTime(&time);
			printf("%04i-%02i-%02i %02i:%02i:%02i.%03i ",
				time.wYear,
				time.wMonth,
				time.wDay,
				time.wHour,
				time.wMinute,
				time.wSecond,
				time.wMilliseconds
			);

			// Print event
			switch ( event.EventType ) {
				case FOCUS_EVENT: {
					printf("focus setFocus=%i\n", event.Event.FocusEvent.bSetFocus?1:0);
				} break;
				case KEY_EVENT: {
					const auto& e = event.Event.KeyEvent;
					char keystr[24] = {}; // Translate key+scan code to string
					GetKeyNameText(e.wVirtualKeyCode | (e.wVirtualScanCode << 16), keystr, sizeof(keystr)/sizeof(keystr[0]));

					printf( "key state=0x%04X vk=0x%04X %4s %12s\n",
						e.dwControlKeyState,
						e.wVirtualKeyCode,
						e.bKeyDown?"down":"up",
						keystr
					);
				} break;
				case MENU_EVENT: {
					const auto& e = event.Event.MenuEvent;
					printf("menu command=%i\n", e.dwCommandId);
				} break;
				case MOUSE_EVENT: {
					const auto& e = event.Event.MouseEvent;
					COORD pos = e.dwMousePosition;
					printf("mouse x=%i y=%i btn=0x%02X ctrl=0x%04X f=0x%1X\n", pos.X, pos.Y, e.dwButtonState, e.dwControlKeyState, e.dwEventFlags);
				} break;
				case WINDOW_BUFFER_SIZE_EVENT: {
					const auto& e = event.Event.WindowBufferSizeEvent;
					printf("resize w=%i h=%i\n", e.dwSize.X, e.dwSize.Y);
				} break;
				default: {
					printf("Unknown event 0x%04X\n", event.EventType);
				}
			}
			fflush(stdout);
		}
	} while (running);
}


HRESULT printError() {
	return printError(GetLastError());
}

HRESULT printError(HRESULT error) {
	LPVOID lpMsgBuf;
	FormatMessage(
		FORMAT_MESSAGE_ALLOCATE_BUFFER | FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM | FORMAT_MESSAGE_IGNORE_INSERTS,
		nullptr,
		error,
		MAKELANGID(LANG_NEUTRAL,SUBLANG_DEFAULT),
		(LPTSTR) &lpMsgBuf,
		0,
		nullptr
	);

	printf("%s\n",lpMsgBuf);
	LocalFree(lpMsgBuf);

	return error;
}
Here are the results. In both this first snippet, I am pressing each key from 'a' to 'z' in sequence. In the second snippet, I am repeating the keys but in "WTF-mode". Comments, denoted with a semicolon, were added to the end of the line after the output was obtained.

If I were to hazard a guess, it seems that WTF-mode is a debug feature or unimplmented feature from my mouse driver software that seems to be interpreting uninitialized memory as keyboard macros. It's possible that that the repeated "device disconnect" sound and the LEDs have something to do with this as well.

But seriously, 3spooky5me...
