En USB-dræber

usb-killerJeg ville ønske at der var flere sikkerhedsfolk involveret i hardware design, for f.eks. denne “USB killer” fra en russer:

I read an article about how a dude in the subway fished out a USB flash drive from the outer pocket of some guy’s bag. The USB drive had “128” written on it. He came home, inserted it into his laptop and burnt half of it down. He wrote “129” on the USB drive and now has it in the outer pocket of his bag…
– om inspirationen bag designet

Kort fortalt fungerer den ved at lade nogle kapacitorer op, der derefter aflades på en anden USB kanal der ikke kan klare så store ladninger. Det gentages indtil der ikke mere kommer ladning nogen af vejene.
