Security firm Sophos said it studied 50 USB keys bought at a major transit authority's Lost Property auction
and of those 50, two-thirds were infected with malware.
Another fun tidbit: none of the 50 USB keys were encrypted, though none contained any "smoking guns," like insider trading tips, credit card dumps, criminal plots, etc. There were, however, files containing tax deductions, minutes of an activists' meeting, photo albums of family and friends, software and web source code, and other information you typically wouldn't want to go around sharing willy-nilly.
