I'm in a fun security-battle with a co-worker, where we each try to attach each others system in order to send out an email to all other co-workers in which they are invited to come and have a sweet treat.
I run Ubuntu 14.04 and have an encrypted harddrive. I use a passphrase to unlock that and have a fairly strong password on my account. I automatically lock the screen each time.
I tried to think of attack vectors, and thought of a hardware keylogger. I think that is basically undetectable, but what IS detectable is the detachment of my usb-keyboard.
I tried to built something myself, by reading the output of
lsusb and calling
notify if something has changed. This is kinda cumbersome, so basically what I would like to know:
TL;DR Is there a tool that provides alerts on usb attachment / detachments of devices?
