Malicious devices are everywhere these days, whether you can see them or not. Some take the form of malicious wireless networks that steal information. Others are physically planted and can do practically anything a hacker desires. These devices are designed to destroy, steal, and infect all kinds of machines. Sometimes these devices can do their malicious tasks without a victim having any idea that they were attacked. This course will teach you what a USB drop attack is. Then you will learn why they these types of attacks are so effective. You will see the different forms these attacks take, including spoofing keyboards, using malicious files/code, using social engineering links that trick victims in various ways, destruction of machines using electricity, and the use of previously unknown vulnerabilities against a target. You will discover how attackers disguise these attacks to make them successful. You get an understanding of the work attackers put into reconing targets and deploying devices. Then you will be shown step by step how to conduct three different types of attacks. After learning everything about these attacks, you will learn how to defend against these attacks.
