You’ve all seen it in TV and movies. A shady character walks by the front entrance of a high security facility and quietly drops USB keys out of his pant leg near the front door.

Does this attack scenario actually work, or is it just a fun work of fiction? One of my favorite Black Hat 2016 presentations answers that question. Watch the video below to find out.
