Plug and Prey: Malicious USB Devices

Keeping security in mind all the time, our computers, laptops, tablets and other mobile devices are available to all kinds of physical attacks as well. The good news: there are ways to protect yourself, but you need to be aware of the risk first.

Full Disclosure: I am employed at McAfee who now owns WaveSecure.

Whichever app you decide on, it is obvious that people can no longer wait to get protection on their mobile devices. Not to be “Fox-ish”, but you may already be infected and should at the very least, download a free trial to ensure your device is not compromised.
