It's kind of old and rather useless aproach by now.
Autorun is not enabled in modern Windows ( XP is officially out ), and if they would all use MacOS or Linux , it wouldn't work at all.
The real problem is that security is always in a way of getting things done.
Compare it with air travel - in old days I could walk into airport 10 min before take off and still make it. Unthinkable by modern standards.
There is always compromise between how secure system is and how much work is expected to be done. You just found that compromise and exploit it.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
