Two Thirds of USB Devices Infected

Australian rail company sold unwiped USB keys from lost property in auction.  Not the smartest idea.

But it provided a glance into data stored in USB devices with some  interesting stats:

  • The prevalence of malware: 66% were infected.
  • A lot of interesting docs  (duh..)
  • None was encrypted (duh.. times two)

For further breakdown and nice tables and graphics see Sophos site.
