Company Markets “USB Condom”

A security and hardware specialist has invented and released a new product—called the USB condom—that prevents outsiders from compromising USB devices. Stephen A. Ridley’s USB Condom blocks data pins in a USB device, which keeps data from potentially being stolen from the USB device, while leaving the power pins free. This is designed to help people who plug their USB devices into, for example, a public charging kiosk or a coworker’s computer. Ridley’s int3.cc (http://int3.cc) website says the product, which it is distributing, is now out of stock but will be available again soon. (SlashDot)(Hot Hardware)(int3.cc)
