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.


oyster:

    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 ?
