Can the ducks code run if the computer is locked?

Locked - Yes as it acts as a USB keyboard, but is limited to the focused screen/window, in this case the locked screen.

Ducky can support CTRL-ALT DEL, so you could try to brute force accounts (dependent on account policies)

Do you have to be admin?

You don't necessarily have to be admin, but you user might need permission to install drivers for the Ducky to install correctly.

Are there ways to protect from a duck attack

There are ways to block the Ducky like Device-Control - but this can be bypassed. Other methods include disabling USB (but then no USB devices work) Edited by midnitesnake
