How It works

The USB Power Surge vulnerability is a common flaw in products with USB connections. To save money, manufacturers do not protect the power or data lines of devices, which leaves them open to attack.

When plugged into a device, the USB Killer rapidly charges its capacitors from the USB power lines. When charged, -200VDC is discharged over the data lines of the host device. This charge/discharge cycle is repeated many times per second and phew you get a blank screen with a dead motherboard.

The Good News

We all are aware of the competition between top tech giants Samsung and Apple and their determination to serve the market with the best smartphones. Now the good news is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and probably the newly released Samsung Galaxy S10 series with the Iphone X series now have built in protection against the USB kill device making them immune to this innocent looking deadly USB kill device, sounds nice right?

The video below is a text carried out on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the Iphone X series.
