CornCon 2018

At this year’s CornCon cybersecurity conference ( we learned about several USB devices an intruder could use to break into or even destroy a computer. The USB Killer ( is a device that draws power from a USB port to charge up capacitors and then dump hundreds of volts back into the machine over the USB data lines which can permanently damage the machine. The Bash Bunny ( was another USB device that was presented that can present itself to the host system as a keyboard and automatically begin typing commands once plugged in. This device also can present itself as a network interface which can begin capturing data even when plugged into a locked machine. From these demonstrations we learned about the dangerous outcomes that could happen when plugging an unknown USB device into a computer.
