  CRYPTOGRAM

      USBDumper



USBDumper is a cute little utility that silently copies the contents of 
an inserted USB drive onto the PC.  The idea is that you install this 
piece of software on your computer, or on a public PC, and then you 
collect the files -- some of them personal and confidential -- from 
anyone who plugs his USB drive into that computer.  (There's a similar 
program that downloads a disk image, allowing someone to recover deleted 
files as well.)

No big deal to anyone who worries about computer security for a living, 
but probably a rude shock to salespeople, conference presenters, file 
sharers, and many others who regularly plug their USB drives into 
strange PCs.
