Secure Dongle X

Hi there

We recently found a "Secure Dongle X" in the back of a clients PC. Now they do not have any software that would require a dongle and we have never seen it before.

Could it be used for anything untoward? Hacking etc?

They do have concerns regarding one member of staff, this member of staff and her family also clean the building at weekends when no one else is about, so have plenty of opportunity to "mess around" without being seen.

I'm aware of that but they don't have any secure software that would require one. They did use to use a voicemail system but that is long gone and i do not recall that dongle being there the last time i was working on that pc.
That's weird. Those dongles not used for hacking purpose but could you check more closely if the dongle have been tampered or not? Possibly it might be some other tool covered with Secure Dongle X cover!
If that is very critical machine that might be a kind of transmission dongle whihc delivering the data somewhere else.

No good answer as this is unusual so we will have to see what happens.
