"Does dropping (malicious) USB drives in parking lots and other places really work?"
297 samples were dropped, 290 got picked up. 135 people opened documents (HTML pinger), 54 flash drives got returned.
20% were opened within the first hour. In less than 5 hours half of the devices were used by someone.

USPol, New Hampshire, Voting, Warning (!!!!!!!!)
If you are from New Hampshire, be CAREFUL when you vote, especially if you plan to just vote down party lines. Apparently when someone runs unopposed, the state now puts their name under BOTH the democrat and republican tickets.

im just dumb furrie
