Cyber crooks aim for your information with misplaced USB scam

You're in a coffee shop. You spot a USB thumb drive on the ground. You probably shouldn't, but you pick it up and slip it in your pocket because you need one.

Later that day, you pop it into your laptop. Within seconds, a cyber crook has total control of your computer, network and digital life.

It's called 'USB baiting' and FOX 35's Tom Johnson sat down with an expert 'ethical hacker' to show you how the scam works and how to protect yourself.
