Criminals have been creative as they came up with ways to steal data from major Dutch materials and life sciences company, DSM,. The hackers put USB sticks with spyware in a parking lot of the business and hoped that employees then the sticks in their laptop would do. DSM claims that the result was unsuccessful.

The unusual plan failed when one of the employee who is the first USB stick took it to the IT department who scanned it first. There was the malicious software was detected and the IP addresses that the malware communicated blocked.

The other infected USB sticks were detected. DSM said the attempt was clumsy, but it sounds to us like it was simply lucky. Not all the employees reported the infected USB sticks and they did put them into their company machines
