You plugged an unknown USB device into your computer?

Also: "released to coincide with DefCon", ffs. This thing is basically moron bait. It's like that joke NSA phone charging kiosk. You were so farking stupid you plugged into an unknown device, OF COURSE you got pwned, you dipshiat!

The ones hidden inside phone charging cables or even phones running software that emulates the series of exploits? (Not quite sure how to phrase that) are even more fun to play with.

Heh, I still have a tab open for the rubber ducky. I love playing with USB device drivers.

Btw, fedora/rhel at least have usbguard. You can allow you specific devices and disallow everything else.

Leave these scattered around the RNC parking garage with various labels:

2022 Payroll (Secret)
Barely Legal Teens
Property of Hunter Biden
My Bitcoin Wallet Passwords

Because anyone working for the RNC are greedy perverts that are dumb as a bag of hammers.

whicc is why i turned it off right then and and could not go any further.
I can give a lot of temporary suspension of disbelief, but i do have my limits. that'd take so much boozahole to swallow it'd kill a horse. If the writers don't care who their character is, then neither do i, so nothing of any interest to see here i guess.
