PoisonTap - works on locked computers

   
SecurityPoisonTap - siphons cookies, exposes internal router & installs web backdoor on locked computers.

As the article Wickedly Clever USB Stick Installs a Backdoor on Locked PCs decsribes, this is a very real threat, and it is quite hard to have an effective and practical defense for it, du to the way we work today. It works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux at least.
