    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.

    I thought I would share with the community as I found this device to be rather interesting.​

    Damn that's pretty sick, I kinda made my own killer usb drive but mine was different, I have to actually execute scripts from the flash drive myself but do you know if there's a way I could get one of those cuz @Hobbs needs it for his cyber jihad
