Defense against

Recommended Posts

So how do use use a keyboard or mouse if you disable USB ports?  This is where this device gets around this.  Most will disable mass storage, but since the ducky acts as a HID device, you can bypass this.  Now you could disable USB totally and go old school with PS2 mice and keyboards.  But in most environments, the vendors only provide USB devices.  There are ways to get restrictive on HID devices but it is a management nightmare.

Even if you were to go with PS2 only, you could always get an adapter for that. Not as convenient and fast but in theory it should work.

If we were talking about modern laptops then no worries about exposed PS2 ports. You might have the ability to disable USB completely via BIOS as well as setting a unique BIOS password.

Using a quality NGAV with device management enabled can seriously reduce this vector. Within the Windows environment that is ?
