At INFILTRATE 2012 I presented "Undermining Security Barriers - Further Adventures with USB"[1]. I have just released a 
white paper entitled "Lessons learned from 50 bugs: Common USB driver vulnerabilities"[2], which analyses the first 50 
USB bugs I discovered using the techniques I talked about last year and discusses the most likely locations for USB 
bugs in the various descriptors and class-specific data structures, which will hopefully be helpful to others 
researching USB security.
