USB Killers: What You Need To Know

The USB killer is quickly growing in fame.  The small device that fits into regular USB ports and rapidly kills the motherboard of the device is said to work on 95% of computers.  This device is loaded with capacitors that pull in electricity from the host device and then release a rapid electric pulse that will fry anything on the receiving end. PC On Fire Shoot

This happens in about 1-3 seconds and the job is done!

But, not so fast with thinking this solves everything.  I have included a video below that shows the USB Killer in action on a variety of devices.  Some computer companies have already made internal preparations for this kind of attack, so it is not 100% effective.

In the video below all devices did in fact have the port itself fried and data shut down.  So it’s useful to some degree for sure.  If you have to use this device you are already in trouble.  With the cloud in full swing these days, what you have done will probably not just be stored on the device in your hands.  Just keep in mind this is a handy device and it could buy you some time.

Here’s the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pP8TLwO_Ks

Here is the USB Kill site where you can buy one for about $50 if you order it out of the UK:  https://www.usbkill.com/order?ipa=8

If you want to pay around $80 you can order off of ebay.com .  There are many sellers.
