After the presentation on the recent BlackHat conference, can we ever trust USB devices again?
Without doubt, it is a serious security issue that raises legitimate concern. However, Wibu Systems explains in this article why CodeMeter devices are not vulnerable to the demonstrated exploit. It also explains the fundamental mechanisms of the attack strategy, and which obstacles an attacker must overcome to succeed with his attempt to subvert a computer system (in short: While possible it’s not quite so easy).
Steel Beasts’s utilization of the CodeMeter USB stick for software license management remains secure. To the extent that USB ports in general are seen as a security weakness, alternatives may be considered. Please contact eSim Games if you need specific advice.
