It’s called social engineering.
Humans are programmed in a certain way.
An IT Security Expert exploited his whole company.
He went out and bought a lot of USB memory sticks and programmed with a back door trojan horse. He went to work early once and scattered them around the car park with a note congratulations you just won a free USB.
All the employees picked them up went into work and plugged them into the computers. He compromised his whole IT company within half a morning.
Their IT policies in regards to USB memory cards changed rather quickly.
