BGR - Brinks Safe Hacked With USB Stick and 100 Lines of Code

Posted on Jul 28, 2015 12:57:53 PM

As typically portrayed in action movies, breaking into an ostensibly impenetrable safe often requires a world-class lock-picker or, barring that, an array or C4 explosives positioned in just the right orientation. But in the real world, surprisingly enough, defeating the security mechanisms on a top-notch Brinks safe can be done with nothing more than a USB stick and 100 lines of code. At the always entertaining DEF CON Hacking Conference set to kick off in Las Vegas next week, researchers Daniel Petro and Oscar Salazar of Bishop Fox will detail how they were able to skirt around the defenses of the Brinks CompuSafe Galileo with relative ease.
