Hacker can backdoor your computer.

  If you lock your computer and walk away, it takes only 30 seconds for a hacker armed with a small $5 Raspberry Pi Zero, which is loaded with devious code, to completely pwn your password-protected computer and install remotely accessible backdoors.

PoisonTap, the latest creation of hacker and developer Samy Kamkar, has a long list of wicked slick capabilities, including the fact that after an attacker removes the device from a USB port, a backdoor and remote access will persist on both your computer and your router.

When inserted into a USB port, PoisonTap tricks a computer into believing it was just plugged into a new Ethernet connection that takes over all internet traffic.
