The Significant Threat of USB Devices

USB Devices… Are They Safe?
A research study done by Honeywell was just released on Friday, and it shows that removable USB devices (flash drives) are a significant threat to industrial facilities.

Many of the detected threats were known issues such as Mirai, TITRON, and variants of Stuxnet. This data brings light to the fact that advanced systems must be implemented, or serious and dangerous situations will soon arise.
