overwraith Posted July 1, 2015 Share Posted July 1, 2015 So I was wondering would it be possible to take a raspberry pi or some small computer and alter the USB protocols on it so that it would essentially act like a USB rubber ducky, as well as a mouse? One would essentially be altering system files/libraries on the device. If this were possible we could add image processing to the mix via a raspberry pi camera and essentially create a little autonomous robot that actually accepted input from the screen. Think about this, if we had some image processing, and optical character recognition we could literally use the mouse to click buttons via the connected computer, and literally could process and turn off AV etc. The idea would be to connect the sawed off pi to the computer via a male to male USB cable, set it up on the desk looking at the computer screen and have it do its scripted magic. This might not be possible I don't know nearly enough about messing around in the egg salad that is operating systems/protocols. The raspberry pi might not have enough processing power though, so one might need to use an actual laptop. Does anybody know whether something like this is actually possible? If there was some device that actually accepted monitor input then that would be able to parse the screen data as well. This would not be something you could easily pass off as a flash drive, but it would be interesting if it was actually possible, and it might open lots of doors in terms of automated physical attacks.
