Re: File Creation Timestamps
I agree. File attributes are not real indicators what is happening. They can easily be modified and dynamically changed on the fly.

Re: Use HASHDEEP to detect the resulting stolen data
I assume there is always a way to see the trace if you analyze the USB drive itself. It is still playing a catch up tough. USB sticks are real danger to businesses.

Re: interesting to know
This is actually not a new news, we have heard that USB device can easily be used to exploit vulnerabilities in the past. We all need to be cautious on that.

USB port
 

USB port is a powerful way to access a secure network. When an employee finds a USB stick on the parking lot he/she feels lucky and wants to check what is in it. Super effective way of infecting computers and networks. May be it is time to block all USB ports :--))

It is very easy to tamper with file timestamps. Creation time/date / modified..etc.

Use HASHDEEP to detect the resulting stolen data
The program HashDeep has a negative audit mode that would show any additons to the USB stick.
The filename would not mater.  The article does not address where the stolen data file is stored at.
Is it always stored in the same place?
