Here’s a news that will cheer up all the activists, criminals, activists and whistle. currently they have got a new tool referred to as USBkill to avoid wasting themselves by movement down the pc before it'll sensitive data is examined.
USBkill turns your USB into a kill switch once activated. It’s a program – a coding system that may disable the pc if there’s any activity at the USB port. This weapon may well be kept within the USB drives and attached to the computers with sensitive data.
Hephaestos, the applied scientist who wrote the USBkill script, says that USBkill is an anti-forensic USB. He says that it will be of utmost important in case the police busts your bunker, or steals your laptop computer. USB waits for a few modification at USB ports then suddenly kills your pc. He writes:
“The police will use a mouse jiggler to keep the screensaver and sleep mode from activating. If this happens you would like your computer to shut down immediately. Additionally, you may use a cord to attach a USB key to your wrist. Then insert the key into your computer and start USBkill. If they then steal your computer, the USB will be removed and the computer shuts down immediately.”
If the police catches you, you would want your PC to shut down immediately. He advises the users to tie the USB drive to your wrist and instantly start the USBkill by removing the USB when cops knock down your door.
He adds that users must use full disk encryption, otherwise law enforcement agencies will have their party anyway.
It’s an unfinished work and will be improved by Hephaestos. But, it does work effectively.
