Much of the fiction surrounding cyber-attacks and espionage features hoodie-wearing teenage hackers fuelled by caffeinated sodas and pounding away at their keyboards. In reality, the most successful cyber-attacks target people and their behaviour rather than directly hacking of systems.
Why? Because it’s far easier and much more lucrative to exploit risky behaviours inside of a company than it is to hack past numerous firewalls and security systems from outside of a company, without arousing suspicion.
Recently, researchers from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel have discovered 29 ways someone can insert malware into your computer or smartphone via a USB port.
In this presentation, we will be looking at some of the myths vs reality regarding USB security and what makes USBs such a successful attack vehicle.
