USB attack infects computers through indirect means

USB attack infects computers through indirect means

Researchers at Trend Labs were investigating a case involving a backdoor (BKDR_ANDROM.ETIN) which was being filelessly installed onto target machines. The process of infection within a Windows 10 machine has a relatively straightforward path, beginning with the insertion of the USB, which contains two malicious files and ending in the decryption of a normal file and release of the BKDR_ANDROM.ETIN file.
