    #USBNinja cable that uses Bluetooth to command the malicious cable to inject its
    payload onto a targeted machine. The transmitter range is up to 100m depending on the antenna used.

    "My sincere Congrats to Olaf, Dennis, Vincent Yiu and the rest of the RFID Team for
    such brilliant work. This work was borne out of the NSA’s COTTONMOUTH project
    disclosed by Edward Snowden. For those that are interested in the #USBNinja cable,
    this was formally codenamed USBHarpoon."
