BadUSB – Attack Explained (Video)

For those of you that might have missed one of the hottest topics of this month, the BadUSB attack method, we created a short and simple to understand video that explains the basics of the attack.

Feel free to share it with your friends and family, because it’s something most people are not aware of. The attack can be as simple as someone intentionally leaving a cheap USB drive on the ground. You pick it up, curious to find out what’s on it, only to find yourself wishing you didn’t a week later when you find out your credit card was maxed out.
