Project Sauron.

A hacking toolkit that is basically undetectable, with multitudes of reconfigurable modules that intelligently hide their existence, and even jump air-gapped computers with trusted USB software and sources.

And it's most likely state sponsored.

I know the episodes of "Madame Secretary" are topical, and all, but ... damn. This is straight out of the "Air Force One security hack" storyline.


    To do this, the malware uses specially prepared USB storage drives that have a virtual file system that isn't viewable by the Windows operating system.

So am I understanding right that an actual person would have to bring a USB to the computer ?
