ET has a chilling report:

Despite a ban, use of pen drives has emerged as the main threat to cyber security in defence forces as it is responsible for over 70 per cent of such breaches in the three Services.

The use of pen drives as an easy-to-carry storage device has increased in the recent past and internal reports have confirmed that over 70 per cent cyber security breaches in the armed forces are due to their unauthorised use, Army officials said.

“These pen drives, which are mostly manufactured in China, have emerged as a big threat to our cyber security systems,” they said.

Defence Intelligence should not be an oxymoron. Someone out there should know about isolating sensitive networks, using monitoring software, controlling access, personalizing document views and decrypting on the fly. Would they want us to import pen drives from friendly countries only?
