usbkill is a simple program with one goal: quickly shutdown the computer when a USB is inserted or removed.
Events are logged in /var/log/usbkill/kills.log
You can configure a whitelist of USB ids that are acceptable to insert and the remove.
The USB id can be found by running the command 'lsusb'.
Settings can be changed in /etc/usbkill.ini
In order to be able to shutdown the computer, this program needs to run as root.
-h --help: Show this help
--version: Print usbkill version and exit
--cs: Copy program folder usbkill.ini to /etc/usbkill/usbkill.ini
--no-shut-down: Execute all the (destructive) commands you defined in usbkill.ini,
but don't turn off the computer
