Student Finds Hidden Devices in the College Library - Are they nefarious?

A reddit user finds raspberry pi zeros hidden behind trash cans, vending machines and other places in the college library. We reverse engineer them and determine if they are malicious.

Tldw: nothing bad, just some student project to calculate area busyness with rasberry pi devices that scan for phones.

They were obviously not nefarious, idk why everyone freaked out. I'm sure they'd be much better hidden/protected if the creators had nefarious intentions.

There's a youtube video on this where an Indian coder checks the code. Worth a watch if you can find it.
#9
this is nothing new, but nice to recall
#10
whats ya guunna do when they come for u
#11
The video that explains this took the long way around...he could have just grep netstat the active connection and whois to find the host in 5 minutes.

You find a suspicious device and the first thing you do is plug the SD card into your Windows PC?!
