  • piffft, thats a good song. far from the worst video in the world

  • People who think that it's just OK to disable the autorun are idiots

  • OK... but both of those USBs are pretty sweet.

  • I'm glad you are worried about your viewers, but most people who say this ain't gonna work on their machine probably use linux, autoruns on usb is just laughable. Emulating trusted devices ain't gonna work either. The only real concern is the capacitor usb killer thing, which is easily detectable by inspecting the device in the first place. You can use cheap usb hub too if you want to be super safe. If you really want to be pedantic, keep in mind they could just send you a package with poisonous substance in a letter, which is far worse than a killer usb stick, yet you don't probe your mail for poisonous substances. I wold recommend you continue to focus on locks since this is what you do best.

  • Everyone can be susceptible to a usb drive lol. Don’t be so cocky commenters…

  • How dare you not show the Rick Roll meme clip! Im extremely dissapointed and my day is ruined... xD

  • Why didn’t u rickroll us

  • oh hey look, its the resident evil usb

  • im sorry, but where can i get that lovely USB device in the second half of the video???

  • the good old usb killers. it's a little more sadistic than infecting the victims pc and serves no further purpuose like a virus wanting cryptocurrency or something... but the fact they exist makes me smile for some reason :D

  • I might be one of those people who want to watch the world burn. Try me and find out.

  • You should have told me over a year ago!

  • Looks like Time Lord technology

  • WHERE CAN I BUY THAT THAT LOOKS SO COOL

  • I once found a USB drive on the ground, I picked it up and threw it in the trash. It reminds me of a WW2 story that said that US soldiers in Italy would find lots of precious objects like watches and stuff around but they would never as much as glance at them because they feared it was a booby trap and they would lose their arm.

  • Another usb lock with a Steampunk motif. Must be a thing. But loading a drive with computer-frying capacitors is evil genius level 😜

  • I saw this coming years ago.... That's just how society works

  • I’m wondering about the origin of the phrase “Rick rolled”…

  • How do I get that pocket watch looking USB drive!? I want one.

  • You must be talking about the USB killer it's filled with a bunch of capacitors that charges and then fries your motherboard releasing all of that energy back onto your device that you plug it in

  • I got free vbucks from a usb drive like that

  • That's the reason you have a "cheap" computer dedicated for these kind of things. :D

    • yeah, you can get a 25 dollar orange pi and if it breaks oh well

  • It's amazing how many "Know it all, Know nothings" their are. I've always been of the camp that if I don't know what I'm talking about I keep my fuckin mouth shut. Lol

  • Wasn't some virus spread on a military system because some idiot plugged in a USB they found in the parking lot?

  • Couldn't you test USBs from unreliable sources on a virtual machine?

  • Yep- as soon as I saw the caps. I'm a live sound tech, a few years back one sound co. in my area snuck into an area that another sound co. had set up for a large event and left for the evening, sabotaging the mixer. Next day, 1/3 of the channels on the mixer didn't work. After pulling the ckt. board, you could see where diodes on the selected channels were fried at the XLR inputs. I'm guessing a bug zapper with an XLR mic connector did the trick. Unfortunately, the replacement mixer was also hit the next evening.

  • I would keep the usb inside using hot glue and just keep it as a necklace.

  • I have a question: what was on the drive?

  • Those who gave your sh!t about being a noob are backwards and have probably lost a computer or 2, because they think they know everything. I am with you bruh. DONT TRUST ANYONE!!!!!!!!

  • On the USB note, the U.S. had a major security breach in the middle east by very cheap USB drives sold in local shops. They were equipped with mobile phone transmitters to transfer data as soon as they were plugged in.

  • You really should've made the video in your desc never gonna give you up

  • Look, obviously I wouldn't plug in an untrusted usb into my computer. My 'main' computer that is. I have old hardware (laptops) that are 15+ years old and are generally considered obsolete. For curiosity, I would plug it in a laptop that's been freshly reformatted, and not connected in anything else (like wifi and not even power). I would then plug in the USB to see its contents. Of course, before I do all that, I would inspect the USB first and make sure that it's not just full of capacitors. I mean, those kind of USBs have been around since 5~ years ago so I've known about them.

  • Ah yes the CS-tv "experts" who think anti malware/virus program will protect there $1000+ machine from any form of attack.

  • where did you learn to be awesome?

  • Everything aside, I love the nice Steampunk finish of these drives

  • You must have a terrible or poorly configured computer if it's susceptible to a usb lightning attack srly get gud

  • It’s crazy that we have made literal kill switches for computers

  • My brother has a whole set of USB drives that you can use to download anything you want off of somebody's computer in a matter of minutes, or even run dark websites, with no traceability. I think he has a couple that can shut down computers as well. He got them in like a bundle or something.

  • Well the first device you finally took somewhere and found it had cryptocurrency on it. Did you ever do the same with this device?

  • Thanks.

  • I appreciate him not Rick rolling us

  • News flash to the dumb ass's that believe its okay to plug a unknown usb in to your computer, there is a such thing as a killer usb which can fry a computer in a mater of seconds and to every one that still doesn't believe it bad to put a usb that you have no clue where it came from, think of it like this when you plug that usb in to the computer it's like using a condom that you found on a sidewalk at a gas station

  • Me: owns red key USB and gives to my friend saying he can have it Also me: he flexes his 4000 dollar computer My friend:😰

  • Liveboot Linux for the win

  • Whatever happened to getting a crappy computer to see what was on the drive?

  • 𝘗𝘢𝘪𝘯

  • A close relative of the swamp emotional support animal.

  • Funny how there are still people in 21 that haven't heard of USB killers that, if you are luckly, are only frying your USB controller instead of the whole mainboard... Btw, I know IT colleagues that where actually hot gluing USB ports shut so people didn't put their possibly infested sticks in, not even devices like this meant for destruction on an hardware level.

  • What he says is true, but if your job requires you to constantly plug unknown USB devices for one reason or the other: 1) Keep a separate computer for your important/personal files. Or properly set up a virtual machine/environment with 1 dedicated USB port that only the virtual machine will read. (make sure to properly network it with your real PC to avoid malware propagation.) 2) Keep a optically isolated USB hub connected to that dedicated machine/port. So nothing will happen to your machine (& if your hub is a good one, nothing will happen to it also) from these USB killers. If these hubs are too expensive for you, atleast have a "USB killer Test Shield" ready to quickly plug in any suspicious drive to test. PS: yes, many modern laptops/desktop motherboards have inbuilt optical isolation to protect against those surge issues. Even most mobile phone USBs do. But better be safe than sorry!

  • Willfull ignorance is runing rampant in the world today.. Glad to see the Lock Picking lawyer isnt one of them suffering from this affliction ...

  • +1 Rick Roll Views.

  • Just go to the libary and use there computers

    • their* And most public places with computer equipment will charge you for any damage done.

  • Ever since my PC stopped working in '99 I stick all sorts of USB devices in it and they never did it any harm. I suspect that's because it stopped working in '99 tho.

  • There's a million more reasons to fear a random ass USB drive other than being Rick Rolled. Like having your entire life ruined by having a hacker leak all your private information.

  • Should have put a rickroll at the end......missed the chance

  • physical connection, is one of the highest levels of trust a PC has to depend on. if you think a PC is not susceptible ,youre foolish

  • Even newer smartphones have usb killer reistence and some motherboards do as well so unless its older then 2018 when usb killer reistence was less common it should be resistent to these attacks.

  • As a cybersecurity guy, I absolutely love this video. Keep up the good work. Thanks! :)

  • Damn that: I would just make another 15 minute walk to my Walmart and just buy the damn $20, 65 GB Sandisk USB and USB-to-phone connector cord again for all that!

  • cool

  • Man the rick roll meme is way beyond it's point of being funny anymore, like seriously.....It's so braindead and stale

  • How high is the chance that you can blow up someone's computer with that thing?? Now i really wanna see something like that....

  • Wow, never thought you would do something about a device like that, Very interesting!!!

  • As I someone who works in IT security I can tell the risks involved in running unknown USB devices. Corporate world take that very seriously and pretty much all USB devices are disabled via group policy or device management to ensure it can’t run. I don’t ever run random usb devices on my personal device and use the most comprehensive security software as an added layer. This is only evolving to become more complicated and complex and to target smart phones and tablets.

  • Because a simple encryption is too easy

  • ElectroBOOM and me are you on this. USBkiller is a weapon and should be advertised as such. It’s NOT a test device.

  • Idk why people are so ignorant

  • I work in IT and don't even take USB killers seriously. I've fixed thousands of computers and the amount of problems I've encountered from malicious USB devices has been literally zero. You are far more likely to encounter problems because of something YOU did than someone else. Stop being so paranoid, and stop teaching others to be like you. This goes for everyone in the comments.

    • @Andrew Holden Now that is a message I can get behind. I just don't appreciate it when PSAs that are intended to be informative sound more like paranoia than education.

    • @Riley Mundt You know, we're probably both right, but approaching the problem from slightly different perspectives. I agree that my biggest fear regarding my personal computer is a random crackhead stealing it and thinking, "let's boot this up and see what's on it before I fence it." My Windows password is probably enough to stop him, and encrypting the drive (which I did) should be overkill. The other extreme is my previous employer, Ameriprise Financial, which has over a billion dollars under management and whose security team repels over 1000 intrusion attempts per day. This is everything from phishing emails to malware sites to network probing. Now, if someone clicks on a phishing email, is that "something YOU caused" or "someone else"? I say it's a bit of both. Likewise, if someone picks up a USB killer from the sidewalk and plugs it into his computer, whose fault is it? Again, a bit of both, and I would certainly ream out the user for being a dumbass! Why don't we both take a simple message from this video: be aware, and don't be a dumbass!

    • @Andrew Holden How about computers from Ohio State, CitiBank, and Freightliner? All of whom I have repaired computers for. You don't think they would notice if they were attacked? Again, you're more likely going to encounter problems from something YOU caused, not someone else.

    • Found the hacker! Seriously though, consider your own threat environment. Uncle Bob's corner drugstore probably doesn't have too many enemies. Bank of America, on the other hand...

  • Honestly thing you should buy a $100 computer and run them

  • Wow that was in movie called the negosiation bruh

  • couldnt you just use some old computer to test this stuff? also, rick ashley's song might be used to prank people, but it is still pretty good

  • anyone know where to get something like that compass/pocket watch shaped usb case? it looked really cool

  • Is that the cypher lock from the Da Vinci code?

  • You should get a really old or really cheap burner laptop and test them using that? That way nothing bad happens to any of your main devices

  • Lpl, please show us what’s on the number lock with a throwaway computer

  • Never put an unknown USB stick in your computer but let the most corrupt government in our history inject you with an experimental RNA concoction (or whatever they happen to put in the needle in 5 or 10 years) every 6 months for the rest of your life. Yeah ok, Bud.

  • You must probably be the only lawyer I can trust. Never dissapointing.

  • As someone in the industry protecting people against malicious computer attacks I must applaud you in highlighting that no matter how smart you think you are - there will always be someone smarter trying to exploit you. When we say DON'T: click emailed links, use unknown USB devices, or respond to social media requests to 'just go to this website...' - well, there are good reasons we know about, and very good reasons we don't yet know about. The capacitor USB device was a new one on me, fascinating... in a "landmines are amazing" sort of way.

  • Do people seriously not know about USB killers?

  • Fear nothing. Pop open the cases on a handful of various legit USB drives. See what they look like for the most part. Learn the difference between a memory chip and a capacitor. (It's not hard). Now look at the USB killer the LPL showed you in this video at 1:00 and you'll see a BIG difference. Now you know what a legit USB drive looks like, and what a potential killer looks like. So any USB drive you're given, take the case off it (the drive will work JUST FINE without the case, as long as you didn't damage it when taking the case off). Now you know it's safe to plug into a computer that's properly protected (no auto-run, virus scan, etc.) There's always a way to shield yourself. Oh, and if you are ever given a USB killer, simply visit the person who sent it to you and shove it in their laptop when they're not looking 😈

  • Where can I get that usb c lock that looks like a pocket watch? 🤔

  • just open it up in a secured shell. youd be fine.

  • Love this series,,, One question LPL, how long will it take you to match Rick Astley bank account. Never mock a master, you'll get bit.

  • The halting boundary unsurprisingly fix because norwegian predominantly dance minus a perpetual dungeon. tightfisted, icy herring

  • Came here to get rick-rolled... where's my rick roll?!

  • hes like now now….. kiddd take a seat and allow me to educate that void of illiteracy you most certainly have

  • A good, informative video.

  • Thank you.

  • "Hey put this drive in your computer that can upload any data without even a firewall to block it and can easily destroy your internet life trust me it's fine."

  • I would still like to see you plug both into a throw away laptop as you record with the camera you are currently using. Yeah I know, money. But I can hope that one day you may

  • @LPL Do you remember reading about the floppy disks with the strike anywhere match heads ground up and glued to the platter... If my memory serves me correctly it was in a certain pirates recipe book... (Im sure u know exactly what I mean)... LMAO... Anyways I'm 99% certain it was never successfully pulled off but it did make for some entertaining reading... Man that book was so full of errors that I'm glad I havent heard about it in years... I'll never forger my friends scraping the inside skin of a very common tropical fruit, drying the paste in the oven and proceeding to attempt to roll and smoke the nasty purplish dried sludge... Just remembering that gave me a good deep belly laugh... What a bunch yg: Freakin Dumb@$$€$ And for any like-minded individuals, DO NOT TRY AT HOME... Its a whole bunch of work for no effective reason... Might make ya throw up but that's as far as it'll get ya... In fact dont try anything from the previously

  • Have ya

  • I fear nothing.

  • Me: I thought once you insert the USB, it contains a clip of 'never gonna give you up'.

  • Thank you for the advice and warning 👍

  • People are so dumb any USB can be a rubber ducky. Doesn't matter if you have Mac, Microsoft or Linux. It can happen

  • The one that looks like a pocket watch is actually pretty neat

  • I guess you're also a Certified Ethical Hacker!

  • 1:42 Sorry, LPL, but I have to stop you right now. The song most commonly asociated with surprise music redirects, Rik Astley's "Never gonna give you up", happens to actually be quite good _and_ have a quite good quality video, and doesn't qualify as "attack to ears and eyes". We're no strangers to the fact that you've been making a rule of using hard facts in your videos for 6 years straight (we know your channel for so long), and you have no reason to stop doing so now; you know that rule and so do I. You wouldn't get this from any other guy. I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling about that. Gotta make you understand. ;-)

  • Wonder what is on it? Someone send em a burner computer lol
