A former indian student in USA destroyed computers of worth $58,000 using a USB killer stick and will be sentenced to jail for 10 years.
That headline is all jacked up. How about computers worth $58k and not "computers with killer usb stick of worth $58k" .....Huh?
Painful to read
he's too good :)
Why do people do this?
Also people should never plug in any USB they don't know where it is from
I already knew of a device that was basically a capacitor and some simple smarts to charge it up from the USB port, and then discharge it all at once into the port, frying the poor system. It does that repeatedly until it succeeds. Is this the same thing? Probably? (Haven't read the story yet. Don't know if I want to, after that headline.)
You wouldn't do it; but in a public place with lots of computers, some loser can go around nonchalantly inserting their USB of death into each one in turn.
Wow, 10-year sentence. Yeah, it's the same kind of device. Why do some people do such destructive stuff maliciously? Idk, jerk gene? I hope it's recessive.
Any chance you could learn how to write proper English, techacrobat?
