USB Device can damage your Computer in seconds
New Delhi: USB sticks for long are the agents of malware and spreading infection to unsuspecting computer systems making them dysfunctional but still curable. However, a new type of USB device has the potential to damage your laptop, completely.
A researcher who goes by the name Dark Purple has built a USB stick that fries up the internals of a ADPS at intervals seconds of being blocked.
By look, the USB Killer 2.0 looks like any other normal stick but delivers a negative 220-volt electric surge into the USB port and moves from the notion of software damage to a full new concept of physical destruction of victim computers.
