Abstract (english): USB is one of the most widely adopted standards for buses. Little work regarding its security implications has been published. This work provides a brief summary of known issues as well as a documentation of new problems and possible future threats. The discovered issues have been classified and possible solutions have been discussed. During the research a secret channel for data exfiltration, as well as command and control has been designed and implemented. The results reveal the necessity of further research and development to address critical security issues.
