How to Defeat Full-Disk Encryption in One Minute
The attack works like this: A laptop user, even one who is paranoid enough to power down his encrypted machine, leaves it alone for a few minutes. An attacker inserts the USB drive containing Evil Maid into the laptop and boots the machine from the USB drive. The tool installs a sniffer on the laptop, which will then log the encryption passphrase the next time the user enters it. The passphrase can be stored on the disk and then recovered by the attacker later.
