Tropic Trooper's Back: USBferry Attack Targets Air-gapped Environments

Tropic Trooper is well aware that military or government organizations may have more robust security in their physically isolated environments (i.e., the use of biometrics or USB use in a quarantined machine before an air-gapped environment).
