The Ducky is a programmable Microprocessor (unlike traditional USB devices), its main purpose was for emulating a keyboard, and attacking PC's through the HID (Human Interaction Device) interface.

As the platform was left fairly open for people to play and hack the device, the community has expanded the functionality from a simple HID keyboard, to Mass Storage and finally a composite device (mass storage and hid emulation), so rather than fetching payloads from the internet, they can be retrieved from the sdcard.

Effectively - this project has brought back auto-run attacks. Additionally, as the device is programmable you can alter the VID and PID of the Ducky, thus bypass Device Control Software by pretending to by an authorised device :)
