> Yes but did they lock down the USB ports?

At some major EU airports, the PC's used by security staff to the X-Ray (etc) machines have their cables and unblocked USB ports facing users, directly on the edge of the desks right where they're accessible to people just casually leaning on the desks.

For anyone so inclined (not me) they'd be truly trivial to stick something in.

Not sure how that gets past any security audits.
