Is leaving out harmful USB sticks illegal?

Like the title says, is leaving out usbs with key logging or USB killers out in public illegal? I’m not sure if the fault would lie on the person plugging it in without permission or the person leaving it out with malicious intent.



You might want to add your jurisdiction, this can well be very different depending on the country/state you’re in.

But in general I’d really be curious what the legal definition would be. Probably you’d be in for “illegal littering”. ;)


I’m super curious, what would be the use case for this?
