USB DriveBy (Steal Credentials)

Tagged Under: USB Hacking

For those that don’t know, get to know: Samy Kamkar is an incredible hacker and pioneer in many departments. Long story short – he codes and creates some unbelievable hacking tools.

USBdriveby is a device which can quickly and covertly install a backdoor and override DNS settings on an unlocked machine via USB in a matter of seconds. It does this by emulating a keyboard and mouse, blindly typing controlled commands, flailing the mouse pointer around and weaponizing mouse clicks. In this project, we’ll learn how to exploit a system’s blind trust in USB devices, and learn how a $20 Teensy microcontroller can evade various security settings on a real system, open a permanent backdoor, disable a firewall, control the flow of network traffic, and all within a few seconds and permanently, even after the device has been removed!
