thehackernews.com: pi Zero used to hack any computer
Well-known hardware hacker Samy Kamkar has once again devised a cheap exploit tool, this time that takes just 30 seconds to install a privacy-invading backdoor into your computer, even if it is locked with a strong password.
Dubbed PoisonTap, the new exploit tool runs freely available software on a tiny $5/£4 Raspberry Pi Zero microcomputer, which is attached to a USB adapter.
The attack works even if the targeted computer is password-protected if a browser is left open in the computer's background.
All an attacker need is to plug the nasty device in the target computer and wait.
