[Version 1] Brute Forcing With The Ducky.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if I was able to make a code with Arduino to generate passwords, then use them to attempt to bruteforce an admin account locally. As in:

Generate password,

input "administrator" - (username)


input password value,

enter enter.

repeat until access is granted.

I am also considering using a wordlist, any links or even code on how to implement this would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Even if the operating system does nothing to limit the speed of your guessing (which it easily can and certainly should), USB keyboards at 12 Mbit/sec are limited to 1000 state changes per second, due to the design of the HID protocol. Each keystroke is usually implemented as 2 events, a key down and key up.

I've been working on some code to do some brute forcing, but I can't seem to get it quite right. You're welcome to take a look at it, but if you fix it and get it working properly, I'd really appreciate it coming back to me.

// Simple Bruteforcer v0.1
// by HaDAk
// Special thanks to Kevin B. and Carl V.

  // Variables
  int ascii = 32; // 32 - 126
  int digit = 1;
  int blinkcount = 0;
  int MAX_PASSWORD = 32;
void setup() {

  // Blink when the ducky is first plugged in, to verify power to it.
  while(blinkcount < 2){
  delay(1000); // wait a second

void loop() {

void blink(int time){
  pinMode( PIN_D6, OUTPUT );    // set LED to super bright
  digitalWrite(PIN_D6, HIGH);   // LED on
  delay(time);                  // Slow blink
  digitalWrite(PIN_D6, LOW);    // LED off

void enter(){ // Press the enter key, and release it

void hax(int n){
    char curpw[MAX_PASSWORD];
    for(int i = 0; i < MAX_PASSWORD; ++i)
        curpw[i] = '\0';
    curpw[0] = 32;
        char *test = &curpw[0];
        while (*test > (char)126)
            if (curpw[MAX_PASSWORD-1] > (char)126)
            *test = 32;
            if (*test < 32)
                *test = 32;

void try_password(char* curpw, int n){
    for(int i=0;i<n;i++){
