This payload copies the names of all the files on a victim's PC, then puts them on a file on the root of the ducky. In order to remove suspicion, the ducky also automatically hides the gathered recon info so that it can only be seen when the batch file is run. This whole process is relatively discrete, bug free and can run and finish in a matter of seconds. This payload is great for the first phase of a Pen Test, since it effortlessly shows you the contents of a victim's PC, which can then later be used for an "involuntary backup".
Reconnaissance, or recon, is all about gathering information on a target — be it an individual computer or the network at large. Individual computers may be scanned using a hotplug tool like the Bash Bunny or USB Rubber Ducky coupled with keystroke injection techniques to obtain valuable information without the need to elevate privileges.
Network reconnaissance techniques involve active scans, which may be observed by intrusion detection systems, or passive scans, which may go quietly undetected. The information obtained in a recon operation may assist in the red team's audit plan for future missions such as phishing campaigns or exfiltration. On the network enumeration side, many techniques exist for scanning the network from the outside. The same techniques may be applied to scanning inside the network, which is where hotplug Ethernet attack tools like the Shark Jack excel. See all recon payloads.
This payload is for the USB Rubber Ducky — a "flash drive" that types keystroke injection payloads into unsuspecting computers at incredible speeds. It's no wonder this little quacker has made appearances on Mr. Robot, FBI, Blacklist, National Geography and more!
