The USG Dongle protects you from BadUSB attacks

This just turned up at Hexus news for $50.
noted that "the truly paranoid" can build their own USG firmware.
LOL, :D

Thanks for the share. But how is it immune? Like what is in there that keeps it immune.

In the case of Coreboot/Libreboot (eg... Chomebook/Lenovo X200 ThinkPad)
... this is trusted firmware which protects the device @ boot.

As for USG it stops unauthorized USB writes to
the attached device's firmware/microprocessor.

And "locked" USB adapters only allow charging
devices while blocking all data transfer.

Finally... Kanguru brand devices use "signed"
(encyrpted) trusted firmware to protect it's products.
:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should consider.

You can find one of the link's in Evan's post. Also the links in the original post.

As for the links with a "webwarper" prefix remove the url prefix first.
(the WebWarper service is discontinued...)
