Dropped USB Sticks in Parking Lot as Actual Attack Vector
For years, it's been a clever trick to drop USB sticks in parking lots of unsuspecting businesses, and track how many people plug them into computers. I have long argued that the problem isn't that people are plugging the sticks in, but that the computers trust them enough to run software off of them.
This is the first time I've heard of criminals trying this trick.
