USB Drop Attacks


Malicious devices are everywhere these days, whether you can see them or not. Some take the form of malicious wireless networks that steal information. Others are physically planted and can do practically anything a hacker desires. These devices are designed to destroy, steal, and infect all kinds of machines.
