Hack a phone jack to access a hidden USB drive


DIY hidden flash drive

I’ve always wondered what I would do if I came into some vital information that needed to be hidden from prying eyes. You know the kind, the data that could potentially bring down the government and bring the world as we know it to a standstill. Sure, I have no idea how someone like me would come into such information, but I’ve seen enough movies to know it could happen. Thankfully I now know that I would hide it in an unused phone jack.

This project requires a lot of skill and some steady hands. Then again if you’re the kind of super spy that  needs this, you should be able to manage. What you’ll do is wire up a USB drive into the phone jack, which as you would imagine requires some seriously difficult soldering. In the end you’ll be able to use a custom USB to RJ11 cord which will grant you access to your data. Sure, it’s going to be a slow connection, but no one will ever find it.
