    Yeah caught that while going over news this morning and was looking for it to pop up here in a topic titled thread about it.

    Maybe @itman can grab a copy of Dumbo or something similar off the Github to test that one too.

    It appears they have to have physical contact with the target but I am wondering how the black hats will use this new info to create a special exploit to use non USB versions.
