Interesting discovery, if you type "chrome://device-log/" in Google Chrome you get a list of all the USB devices that have been recently plugged in your computer, serial numbers and all..

Why? What nefarious use could logging device serial numbers be put to?

Itโ€™s the debug log for the hardware device APIโ€™s like WebUSB, WebSerial and WebBluetooth.

Indeed..Let's hope somebody doesn't find a way to hack into it from code and use it to create some vulnerability

It's just for that Chrome-process. Restart Chrome, and the log is cleared.
