The writer wants terribly for readers to believe that this attack is high tech. It's not. It relies on plugging in a USB cord attached to a device with enough space inside to house a flash drive and a cpu that emulates a keyboard.
Now if all this had been built into a custom-made chip installed in a slim Magic Mouse, that would be cool.
