Want to fry your friends system?. This article is for you. USB killer 2.0 prototype was developed on 2015, which can able to “fry” virtually any device has a USB port. Russian Scholar known under the name Pseudonym Dark_Purple who designed this killer, Now he officially released commercial version of USB Killer.
The researcher says that “The USB Kill 2.0 is a testing device created to test USB ports against power surge attacks. It tests your device’s resistance against this attack. And this device collects power from the USB power lines (5V, 1 – 3A) until it reaches ~ -240V, upon which it discharges the stored voltage into the USB data lines. This charge / discharge cycle is very rapid and happens multiple times per second. The process of rapid discharging will continue while the device is plugged in, or the device can no longer discharge – that is, the circuit in the host machine is broken.”
Developers write that they are well aware of the risks associated with the release of this product.The fact is that according to their information, while Apple is only attended to the protection of their device from such attacks, while hundreds of other manufacturers of devices are still vulnerable.

“Of course, we have raised the question of using [USB Killer] for other purposes.But we are convinced that is similar to the cases of software vulnerability disclosures, hardware manufacturers are responsible to their users and are obliged to provide them with iron, a secure enough.By drawing attention to this issue, we encourage this manufacturer.As far as we know, until Apple – it is the only company that does so voluntarily, the other producers, obviously made a choice not to protect its users – say representatives USB Kill.
