Malware can be easily hidden in seemingly harmless files. This was used, for example, in episode 1. Darlene copies a malicious autorun.inf to several USB sticks and distributes them to a parking lot in front of a police station. A police officer finds a USB stick and connects it to his computer at work.

In addition, there are powerful hacking tools, such as Hak5’s Rubber Ducky, that, once incorporated into a computer system, allow you to copy important and sensitive data or automatically execute other commands. For example, Angela takes advantage of this when she is in the office of her boss at E Corp. is.
