Most hopeless cyber attack ever still works

Stick a USB in the post

A new scam has been uncovered that uses the rather silly low-tech technique of sending a USB flash drive through the post.

The USB drive claims to be carrying a version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus, but in fact carries scamming software, which tricks a user to install a fake support line and handing over bank details.

While the idea sounds dumb, the packages feature legitimate-looking Microsoft Office branding including an engraved USB drive and product key.
