Pretty interesting. If repeatable, this suggests limiting physical access is important--even to the point that you must prevent an attacker from gaining access to any exposed area on the chassis.

ok that is fucking sick! By sound by touch or by contact of a ground from a connecting wire to the computer. Attacking bits of code in a wait, attacking stop points in bits of code wile they are being done... Mind Blown
