@tennoseremel @wzqtparor Thunderbolt is in many ways just PCIe over a cable. For better or for worse.

It's why you can plug a GPU into it and have it work without too much degradation or too many funky device-specific drivers in the middle.

But it also means people can plug "flash drives" from strangers into a PCIe port.

Thunderbolt 4: it might be USB, it might be Firewire, and the only way to find out is plug it in and see if it attacks you.
