USB Killer 2.0 by Dark Purple is More Powerful to Damage any Computer

A Russian security researcher nicknamed Dark Purple devised a weird USB stick that is capable of destroying sensitive components of a computer when plugged-in. Dark Purple, has launched a new version of his computer-frying USB Killer pendrive – USB Killer version 2.0.

USB Killer 2.0 is much more powerful than the previous version and is able to "kill" more than just a PC it is plugged in.

The first version of USB Killer was consist of a DC/DC converter, a few caps and an FET. When plugged into a system, the converter in the USB Killer would charge the caps up to -110V, apply that voltage to signal lines of the USB interface, and repeat the entire process until everything possible in the computer is broken down.

However, the second version of USB Killer dump -220V directly onto the signal lines of the USB interface, which is powerful enough to damage practically any computer with a USB port.
Another major improvement in the new version of USB Killer is the reaction rate. Once plugged into a computer, USB Killer 2.0 takes only a few seconds for the PC to shut down and stop working.

Proof-of-Concept Video Demonstration
While testing his USB Killer 2.0 stick, Dark Purple destroyed his brand new Lenovo Thinkpad X60 laptop. You can watch the video demonstration given above that shows the attack in work

"Do not worry about the laptop, the new motherboard is on the way - and the laptop will live again," Dark Purple wrote in a blog post. "Originally did not plan to restore it, the laptop was purchased specifically for the test."

So it's not false to say that a computer could be converted into a bomb because a hacker can probably make your computer explode as well.

Therefore, next time if you find a USB stick that doesn't belong to you, just beware before inserting it into your laptop. You could lose your Laptop, along with all your important files and data stored in it. I recommend use USB port HUB  do not plug Unkown USB Pendrive directly to your PC/Laptop USB port.

Killer USB is not at all a new concept, USB drives are used as a valid weapon to compromise the system in air-gapped networks.

When creators of the state-sponsored Stuxnet worm used a USB stick to infect air-gapped computers inside Iran's heavily fortified Natanz nuclear facility, trust in the ubiquitous storage medium suffered a devastating blow.

Firts USB Killer Prototype :

The principle of operation of the flash drive is quite simple. When connected to a USB port starts inverting DC / DC converter and charges the capacitor to a voltage -110v, when that DC / DC voltage is switched off at the same time opens the FET through which -110v applied to the signal lines USB interface. Further, when the fall of increasing voltage on the capacitors before -7v transistor closes and runs DC / DC. And so the cycle until you will break everything. The inquisitive mind of the reader is familiar with the electronics already realized why use a negative voltage to the other I will explain that a negative voltage switching easier, as required N-channel field-effect transistor, which, unlike the P-channel may be significantly more current in the same space. Pro area of application will not speak, but a former colleague says it's like an atomic bomb, cool to have, but can not be applied. Dark Purple explained.
