The Russian cybersecurity expert, Dark Purple, who created the devious USB Killer pen drive, has created a new version of the malicious hardware that can brick a device as soon as it is plugged in. In a new blog post, the somewhat anonymous Dark Purple described his device, simply titled USB Killer v2.0. It doesn’t install any malware on your computer once you plug it in. Instead it sends a 220-volt charge through the USB’s signal lines and destroys the computer. The original USB Killer, first revealed online back in March, administered 110 volts, which was more than enough to fry your computer anyway. USB Killer looks quite inconspicuous, too, and could be easily mistaken for an average USB drive.
