by Michael Leibowitz,

Summary : This talk introduces a new entrant into the NSA Playset: BLINKERCOUGH. BLINKERCOUGH is a C&C and data-exfiltration implant embedded in a seemingly innocuous cable. It uses optical means to jump the air-gap, having zero radio footprint. BLINKERCOUGH can be used in radio monitored or radio-denied settings.
