It depends on the network.  If the LAN is configured with no security
(an University ones often are), he may have had his USB drive mounted
shared across the LAN almost automatically.  

Alternatively, if it was a targeted attack, a student may have obtained
admin rights on the LAN and then waited for the Prof to connect the USB
drive.  Once connected the admin-student could copy the contents
anywhere.

I used to have a script I ran once I connected a USB drive to my
machine, it 'backed-up' the contents of the drive to a 'temp' folder on
my system.  I used it to sync files and other things.  They are not hard
to write and on USB v2 very fast - even on big drives.

Subject: Hidden Copying Software

Hi list,

A friend of mine who is a medical professor asked me if it is possible
to copy his usb thumb drive from their class room pc without knowing it?
he told me maybe there's a hidden software that copying it in the
background?

His exam from his usb thumbdrive was exposed all over to his student.I
told him that you need a very high tech software or expensive to do it?
Is any such software capable of this? this some kind of impossible task
in my views.

Thanks.
