  2. Julius Zietlow says

    In our school they put hot glue inside the lan ports of the notebooks for nobody to install malware on it. But the usb ports were free because we should've been able to use them. Don't know why the IT did this.

  3. Julius Zietlow says

    You could protect your notebook for attacks like this by disabling usb until you enter the master password. Don't know if this works with all notebooks or with windows logon.

    Cheaper option – manufacturers add in out of phases parallel diodes to the chassis ground as a voltage spike regulator
