The USB Exchange Project

Postby LSK » Fri May 09, 2008 2:14 am UTC

Have you ever wanted to send - or receive - a message [to/from] the world? This is your chance. The USB Exchange Project is a means for people to trade USB drives with others, and meet other people from the internet at the same time. Here's how it attempts to work:

- Find another person in your area who is participating, or entice someone to participate.
- Swap USB drives.

It sounds simple because it is simple. It's a great way to spread media that you've created, swap music collections, or throw your luck to the wind. At least, I hope it becomes that. Who here would be interested?

That would be cool. Except, you know, it would require the physical transfer of stuff. Which kinda flies in the face of where technology is headed.

The physical transfer is exactly what this project is trying to keep afloat.

Also, no two people on the internets are not axe murderers.

Do you want to trade usb drives?

I like the idea, but like people said... it is a scary thing transfering media to other people's computers.

Yeah, but if they're not axe-murderers or spreading viruses around, they probably have really creep fetishes that they want to try out on the first date.

All axe murderers are by definition hackers. Does it work both ways? If I get a virus from a USB key, should I fear for my life now that he knows my address?

I do not want my computer to get hacked only as a warning sign that my limbs will be hacked off :shock:

basically... if you'e -not- an axe-murderer, there's a potential for you to meet anyone else on the internet, so therefore, everyone else on the internet -is- an axe-murderer.

See, we axe murderers get together and have parties. That explains all the stories about successful internet meetings - the person you heard them from was an axe murderer. But the one of you that isn't an axe murderer probably doesn't want to come to any of our parties.


Oh, wait, we weren't supposed to tell the Victim that? Shit.

I much prefer the idea of slipping data CDs into unexpected places to be found. You can fit a bunch of MP3s, photos, couple videos, etc on them easily, they're much cheaper and thinner, and I get the feeling non-technical people would trust a random CD more than a random USB stick.

Hacking Corporate Networks Tip #104 - buy a shitton of USB drives - we're talking $400 of the $10 buggers. Load with whatever self-installing backdoor trojan you prefer. Leave on the hood of cars in a parking lot. ??? Profit.

Yep. A favorite of penetration testers.

(along with paying the night janitor $20 to swap a cable or shut down a box, or let you in after hours. After all, you work there, he should trust you, right?)

Another case where CDs would be better. Just leave one or two laying around somewhere, in their case but looking like they were dropped, labelled as music that you know someone there would enjoy. Leave them laying around just before the place opens. People find them on the way in, pick them up, put them in the computer to check out because it's the first CD player they come by.
